Gibson Custom Shop 1959 ES-335 Dot Reissue Guitar Review :: Electric Guitars Reviews


the most-versatile guitar ever built!


Description
With its solid maple center block, arched top, f-holes, and chambered wings, the Gibson 1959 ES-335 Dot Reissue Guitar gave the player the resonance of a solidbody and the refined looks of a traditional Gibson archtop with the reduced weight of a thinline. In mid-1962, the ES-335 was changed to include the thinner neck profile that was standard for Gibson in the ‘60s as well as small block inlays on the fingerboard. The Gibson Custom Shop 1959 ES-335 Dot Reissue Guitar follows the vintage specs of the '59 model with its rounded neck and dot markers that would change to a thinner profile and block inlays in 1962. With its beautiful tone and versatility the ES-335 still remain the classic favorite of guitarists across all music genres.
