This Gibson 1963 ES-335 VOS (2016) in glorious, vintage-looking Sixties Cherry is a reproduction of perhaps the most desirable ES-335 ever. A favourite amongst players like Eric Clapton during his Cream years.
A beloved "block neck" with Historic features
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 1963 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.
Totally authentic early '60s construction and playing feel, with great PAF-style MHS pickups, rolled fingerboard binding, accurate finish colors, and great block-neck looks.
