A Reissue ES-335 Right out of 1959

Gibson has gone back to the drawing board to create the most accurate vintage ES-335 reproductions to date. With its arched top, F-holes, and solid maple center block, the semi-hollow '335 has all the power of a solidbody, but with the refined elegance of a traditional archtop. This guitar features an updated antique finish, classic hardware, hide-glued neck, new truss rod and tuner designs, and vintage-style dot fretboard inlays. As adept at jazz and fusion as it is for blues and rock, the Gibson Custom 1959 ES-335 Dot Reissue is a legendary semi-hollowbody.

Gibson Custom 1959 ES-335 Dot Reissue Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Updated authentic vintage appointments

  • Legendary tone from CustomBucker humbuckers
Updated authentic vintage appointments

Gibson's Custom Shop Reissue guitars offer unparalleled authenticity to the classic designs they are based on. Necks are attached using hide glue, which many argue sounds better than synthetic glue. Gibson Custom Shop re-engineered the truss rod, truss rod washer, and anchor to their original form. And the Kluson Green Key Tuners feature proper vintage profile, color, and performance specifications. These features and others make the Gibson Custom 1959 ES-335 Dot Reissue one of the most accurate reproductions ever.

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. The semi-hollowbody design, the sound of its two humbucking pickups, and simple elegance of the pearloid dot inlays have made the original 1950s ES-335s among the most sought-after guitars in the world. Though it can be exceedingly difficult to find an original dot neck 335 from the 1950s, you can get your hands on this Gibson Custom 1959 ES-335 Dot Reissue. It has the looks, the sound, and the pedigree. It's the real deal.

Legendary tone from CustomBucker humbuckers

The Gibson Custom 1959 ES-335 Dot Reissue comes loaded with a pair of Gibson CustomBucker humbucking pickups. Each pickup boasts its own volume and tone controls, allowing you to dial in chiming country tones as easily as high-gain rock tones. The neck pickup delivers a classic hollowbody-style sound 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.

Gibson Custom 1959 ES-335 Dot Reissue Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Captures the legendary sound, look, and feel of Gibson's 1959 ES-335
  • Semi-hollowbody design for enhanced harmonic richness
  • Comfortable body with classic "Mickey Mouse" cutaway
  • Period-correct centerblock shape and neck profile
  • Accurate historic colored binding
  • Hide-glued mahogany neck with extended neck tenon for exceptional sustain and response
  • CustomBucker pickups with Bumble Bee capacitor
  • Kluson Green Key tuners, ABR bridge, and lightweight stopbar

The Perfect Guitar

This is the most incredible sounding guitar that I have ever put my hands around. It plays and looks as good as it sounds. The tone, the harmonics, the overtones, the natural vibrato coming from this guitar run through my Victoria 35115 are indescribable. The '57 classics are astounding. Don't play one unless you want to forget about your Les Pauls and Fenders. I have all of the above but this one gets 90% of my play time.This one is finished in the Custom Shop in Nashville. Good job Gibson. You got this one right.
