Overview

Relive the glory of Gibson's 1958 ES-335 with this meticulously crafted reissue.

This special Gibson Custom Shop 1958 ES-335 reissue celebrates the debut of the pioneering semi-hollowbody with impeccable historical accuracy. From its heavy relic finish to vintage-accurate components, every detail authentically echoes the ES-335's inaugural year. Designed for guitarists who want to experience the legendary tone and feel of Gibson's very first semi-hollow guitar model.

Relive History With a Murphy Lab Heavy Relic Finish

The ES-335 Reissue features Gibson's proprietary Heavy Relic finish, artfully recreating decades of loving wear. Checking, fading and nicks across the maple top and back create an irresistibly vintage vibe. The heavy aging looks and feels gloriously broken-in, as if you've been playing this classic ES-335 for ages. The tobacco sunburst and cherry red transparent finish colors evoke the iconic, road-worn glory of a prized vintage instrument.

Round Your Fingers on the '58 Rounded Neck Profile

The smooth, rounded '58 neck profile glides easily in your hands. Its vintage-accurate shaping with generous girth fills your palm without feeling bulky. Playing riffs, chords and solos flows effortlessly across the bound rosewood fingerboard. An unbound fingerboard adds era-authentic looks. The comfortable, hand-filling contour makes this iconic neck feel like an old friend.

Hear Resonant Semi-Hollow Tone

The ES-335's fully chambered maple body sings with vibrant, lively tone. Its patented semi-hollowbuild captures the rich, complex resonance of a hollowbody with focused punch and sustain. Notes bloom with warmth and attitude, while the maple centerblock prevents unwanted feedback. Combined with a set maple neck, the ES-335 Reissue resonates gorgeously with singing sustain.

Get Iconic Sound With Custombucker Pickups

Custombucker humbuckers authentically recreate the ES-335's original PAF tone. Unpotted for enhanced resonance, these handwound pickups deliver the warm, rounded sound that defined rock and blues in the late '50s. From creamy cleans to gnarly overdrive, the Custombuckers capture the ES-335's legendary voice with spot-on vintage vibe.

Wear a Heavy Relic Finish for Instant Vintage Appeal
