Gibson's ES (Electric Spanish) range of semi-hollow guitars first made their presence known during the late 1950s, and like the famous Gibson Les Paul, was soon seen in the hands of countless notable guitarists the world over.
A Rock n' Roll Legend Revisited
Classic looks, time-honoured tradition and innovative, modern features come together to offer working musicians a fantastic guitar that looks, plays and sounds great.
Using a 3-ply Maple/Poplar/Maple combination, Gibson have crafted the classic body of the ES-335 dot, complete with traditional f-holes over the hollow side chambers. A Maple centre-block is in place at the centre of the guitar's body, preventing uncontrollable feedback which is the bane of fully hollow-bodied guitars.
In addition to this, the centreblock enhances sustain for modern performance capabilities.
Comfortable Maple Neck
Attached to the body of the ES-335 is a Maple neck which features a comfortable rounded "C" profile. Rolled binding on the neck adds to the comfort, making it feel like a neck you've been playing on for years from the first time you pick it up.
A traditional Rosewood fretboard is used, giving you a great platform on which to fret your chords or wail your way through some great lead lines. At the top of the neck, you'll find a bone nut, imparting a natural brightness to your tone while improving sustain.
Classic pearloid dots are in place, guiding your way around the fretboard.
Great Electronics and Hardware
Giving the ES-335 DOT its versatile voice is a pair of '57 Classic pickups. Designed to authentically recreate the classic tones of Gibson's original PAF pickups, these modern pickups deliver awesome, powerful, vintage style tonereminiscent of those late 50's era PAF humbuckers .
These pickups are so authentic to the era that they even carry the original "Patent Applied For" decal on the base plate, and they come with braided, two-conductor wiring, as well as wax potting, to eliminate any chance of microphonic feedback.
Two volume knobs and two tone knobs and a pickup toggle switch allows you to shape your tone to your personal preference.
Up on the headstock, you'll find Grover Milk Bottle Rotomatic tuners, providing superbly precise and secure tuning of your strings.
An ABR-1 bridge with plated brass saddles has been installed on the body of the 2019 ES-335 DOT.
This bridge facilitates perfect intonation across the entirety of the neck and thanks to the great union it provides between the strings and the body, you get awesome vintage tone and excellent sustain.
Beauty That Isn't Just Skin Deep
With its fabulous Blues Burst finish, the new ES-335 DOT is simply striking while the playability and incredible sound really back those great looks up.
