The 'Premiere' edition of the 2016 ES-335 further improves the aesthetics and playability of the popular Gibson semi-hollowbody.
Highly figured maple top with reinforced centre block and redesigned neck
The Gibson Memphis series have helped shape the sound of Blues, Jazz and Rock over the past 5 decades, becoming an iconic part of music history. The 2016 Premiere Edition, in a gorgeous Faded Lightburst finish, benefits from a figured AAA Maple top that really brings out every nuance of the tonewood. The fundamental tone of the ES series still sounds great with a Maple and Poplar body, now enhanced with thermally-treated Adirondack spruce bracing and maple centerblock. This all adds up into rich, luscious tone with an airy resonance for sweet jazz and blues licks.
A Rounded 'C' profile mahogany neck offers effortless playability, with the 2016 model sporting redesigned dimensions for a more comfortable fit.
Tone is appropriately handled by a pair of Gibson MHS humbuckers at the neck and bridge. Dial in everything from high gain, thrashing power to sweet, mellow leads when you wind the volume pots down.
