A semi-hollowbody that is true to the original

The first ES-335s that rolled off the Gibson production line have truly achieved legendary status. Maybe it's the semi-hollowbody design, the sound of its two humbucking pickups, or just the simple elegance of the pearloid dot inlays. Whatever it is, it's made the original 1950s ES-335s among the most sought-after guitars among collectors who are often happy to pay astronomical prices for instruments in good condition. The semi-hollowbody has a 3-ply maple top and back with quartersawn Adirondack spruce bracing secured with hot hide glue, yielding a lively and vibrant sound with incredible sustain. The vintage-spec mahogany neck is topped with an unbound rosewood fretboard and sports a historic truss rod. Grab a Gibson Memphis 1958 ES-335 Reissue, and see what you've been missing.

Wow. Just Wow

An outstanding, heirloom instrument. I've owned a '68 335 and played fifty different ones over the years. This smokes them all. I know it's expensive, but good gravy what you get! Buy it.
