A Stripped-down Version of the Classic 335

The Gibson Memphis 2016 ES-335 Studio semi-hollowbody electric guitar is a no-nonsense performer. Its laminated maple body, arched top, two F-holes, and a solid maple core enhance tonal clarity and sustain. Everything except the headstock is wrapped with a clean-looking black binding. And the standard dual volume/dual tone configuration with a single 3-way toggle gives you access to the full throaty tones that ES-335s always deliver. The Gibson Memphis 2016 ES-335 Studio is a remarkable semi-hollowbody electric guitar.

Gibson 2016 ES-335 Studio Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Gibson quality in a no-nonsense package
  • Dual humbuckers deliver legendary tone
  • Clarity of maple, warmth of a semi-hollow
Gibson quality in a no-nonsense package

The 2016 ES-335 Studio was designed for guitar players who want the performance of an ES-335, but without the ornamentation of the traditional model. Ideal for studio musicians, the ES-335 Studio focuses firmly on optimal sound output, retains all elements that contribute to its legendary tone, and dispenses with the rest. You'll still enjoy Gibson USA humbucking pickups, expertly applied nitrocellulose finish, and a perfect setup. And this stripped-down ES-335 also offers a stripped-down price.

Dual humbuckers deliver legendary tone

The 2016 ES-335 Studio is loaded with a vintage-voiced '57 Classic pickup in its neck and a hotter Super '57 pickup in its bridge position. These pickups are a favorite combination among players at Sweetwater for their versatility. You'll be able to dial in chiming country tones as easily as savagely distorted rock sounds. The neck pickup gives you classic hollowbody-style warmth for jazz and dirty blues. Or flip to the bridge position for sounds covering everything from bright and clean to raw and mean.

Clarity of maple, warmth of a semi-hollow

One of the reasons for the ES-335's enduring legacy is the guitar's maple construction. When combined with its semi-hollow design, the maple adds attack and note fundamental to your tone. And maple is also a great tonewood choice for increasing sustain, especially with the addition of the torrified maple fretboard. The hollow wings of the 2016 ES-335 Studio keep the maple from giving the guitar too strident of a tone. You'll enjoy this 335's tonal balance and ability to fit into any musical situation.

Gibson 2016 ES-335 Studio Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • ES-335 in a stripped-down package
  • Semi-hollowbody design for enhanced harmonic richness
  • Dual humbuckers deliver fat vintage tone
  • Maple construction provides enhanced clarity and sustain
  • Traditional "C" neck profile
  • Subdued aesthetic will look right on any stage
The Gibson 2016 ES-335 Studio is a stripped-down, no-nonsense performer.
