Recreate History With an Authentic 1958 ES-335 Reissue

This meticulously crafted 1958 ES-335 reissue guitar stunningly honors Gibson's legacy, authentically recreating the revolutionary semi-hollowbody electric that changed music forever in 1958. It mirrors original specifications like the 3-ply maple body, mahogany neck, Indian rosewood fingerboard and nitrocellulose dot inlays. With vintage appointments like an ABR-1 bridge, Kluson tuners, gold top hat knobs and more, you'll feel like you're playing an original 1958 ES-335.

Give Your Guitar a Story With Murphy Lab Aging

Murphy Lab aging recreates the look and feel of a well-loved vintage instrument. This 1958 ES-335 gets Gibson Custom's proprietary aging treatment, developing fine cracks, checking and wear patterns in the vivid Tri-Color Sunburst finish. The binding discolors naturally and every detail ages gracefully, evoking the mojo of a 60 year old classic. It responds, resonates and sings like an old instrument, with the playability of a new guitar.

A Semi-Hollowbody That Sings With Sustain and Feedback Control

The ES-335's innovative semi-hollow maple body pumps out rich, vibrant tone with balanced resonance. Its center block increases sustain while controlling feedback. Three maple layers produce full, even resonance across the tonal spectrum. Notes bloom with warmth and attitude. The comfortable contoured body hugs your ribcage for hours of inspired playing. From growling blues riffs to mellow jazz chords, the semi-hollow ES-335 reissue sounds phenomenal.

Fast, Smooth Playability With the '58 Rounded Neck Profile

The unbound '58 rounded neck has a smooth, slim feel for fast playing. Its vintage .687" nut width and rounded C profile feel sleek and inviting. The Indian rosewood fingerboard has rolled edges for comfort. Narrow vintage frets promote effortless bending. The disappeared neck binding maximizes contact between your hand and fingerboard for fluid, dynamic playing. The unbound neck exceeds expectations.

Custombucker Pickups Capture the Classic Gibson Sound

Custombucker pickups deliver that genuine Gibson tone. The neck pickup has warm, smooth voice with enhanced bass response. The bridge pickup provides clarity and presence with bite. Together they supply the warm, balanced tones the ES-335 is revered for. Volume and tone controls offer versatile sound-shaping. Whether playing blues, jazz, rock or anything in between, the Custombuckers let your inspiration sing.
