Celebrating 50 Years of a Rock and Blues Icon - the ES-335!The Gibson Custom 50th Anniversary 1963 ES-335 TD semi-hollowbody electric guitar pays homage to the fact that without the ES-335, we may not have some of our favorite rock and blues from the '60s and '70s. This special 50th Anniversary 1963 ES-335 TD is built with more attention to historical detail than ever before, right down to the exact color of the body binding. Other touches like the slim horns at the cutaways, the cedar rim lining, and the period-correct wiring harness with "Black Beauty" capacitors complete the historical experience that is the Gibson Custom 50th Anniversary 1963 ES-335 TD semi-hollowbody electric guitar.
Gibson Custom 50th Anniversary 1963 ES-335 TD Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
Updated vintage appointments are more authentic than ever
Gibson's latest Custom Shop Reissue guitars include new appointments to add even more authenticity and vintage vibe to their guitars. Necks are now attached using hide glue which many argue sounds better than synthetic glue. Gibson Custom Shop also re-engineered the truss rod, truss rod washer, and anchor to their original form. They also eliminated the tubing that surrounded the truss rod. New Kluson Green Key Tuners now feature proper vintage profile, color, and performance specifications. These features and others make the Gibson Custom 50th Anniversary 1963 ES-335 TD one of the most accurate reproductions ever.
A semi-hollowbody that is true to the original
Early '60s ES-335s have truly achieved legendary status. Maybe it's the semi-hollowbody design, or perhaps the sound of its two humbucking pickups. Whatever it is, it's made them among the most sought-after guitars among collectors who are often happy to pay astronomical prices for instruments in good condition. The next best thing is to get your hands on the this Gibson Custom 50th Anniversary 1963 ES-335 TD. It has the looks, the sound and the star power of the real deal.
Legendary tone from BurstBucker humbuckers
Tonal excellence is yours when you plug the Gibson Custom 50th Anniversary 1963 ES-335 TD into your favorite tube amplifier. Loaded with a pair of BurstBucker humbucking pickups, each with its own volume and tone controls, you'll be able to dial in chiming country tones as easily as savagely distorted rock tones. The neck pickup gives you classic hollowbody-style tones for everything from smooth jazz to dirty blues. Flip to the bridge position, and you'll command sounds covering everything from bright and clean to raw and mean.

The quality is absolutely outstanding, thank you Gibson. The neck is to die for and very comfortable/stays in tune,, but the best part is when I plug it into my all tube Swart or Fender amp,sweet sounds for days! I cannot find anything wrong with this beautiful guitar and when I sit down to play it, it is hard to put it away, very inspiring! Gibson, you hit a home run with this series of guitar!
Also, I want to thank Sweetwater for such outstanding service and prices, especially Mr. Dave Wallent. close [-]
