The Gibson 1959 ES-335 TDN is a historically-accurate reissue of the original 50's semi-hollowbody, but with plenty of new appointments for the modern guitarist.
Superb Semi-hollowbody versatility, vintage looks, and PAF-fuelled tone
The ES-335 that set the standard for 2 generations of blues and jazz guitarists returns once again thanks to Gibson's Custom Shop in Memphis, USA. A meticulous level of research and detail has gone into this faithful 1959 ES-335 recreation, which delivers accurate PAF-style humbucking tones and feels, looks, and plays 'vintage' in every way.
Under the semi-hollow hood, a Maple and Poplar body is braced with quatered Adirondack Spruce, a trademark feature of the classic ES guitars of years gone past. Tonally, this ES-335 sounds gorgeous for singing blues sustain, but can be equally adapted for harder rock and roll styles. PAF-style MHS humbucking pickups give you the wide range of tonality you'll ever need for a gig, powered by Alnico II magnets.
Perhaps the signature look of the '59 ES-335 is the 'Mickey Mouse' style ears, affectionately named thanks to the double cutaway design at the neck joint. A Vintage Natural finish gives this guitar impeccable stage presence without overstating itself too far. A truly gracious, timeless instrument that you can pass down for generations to come!
