built to inspire. And this is all thanks to the elegance of its
distinct semi-hollow body construction…
Your home of purity. The Gibson ES-335 is
meticulously crafted to produce the most natural of tones. And fuel

clarity that others simply can’t compete with. Meaning your leads
will truly sing, while your chords fill the room. No matter your
style, the ES-335 is designed to ensure every note you play
shimmers with the timeless quality of Gibson.
It’s made for the stage. That means no

for producing unwanted noise as you crank the volume, semi-hollow
bodies combine the best of both worlds. So you can play at high
volumes on stage, whilst maintaining superb clarity and note
definition. Take that, and blend it with the irresistible,
wholesome tone of a hollow-body, and you have yourself the ES-335.

When it comes to heritage tone, Gibson are
the best in the business. With over 100 years of expertise, how

'50s and '60s-built guitars – these pickups are born to deliver the
era-defining sound of rock ‘n’ roll.
Humbuckers are characterised by their
ability to produce warmth and clarity in every performance. With a
full midrange and a lovely top-end bite; these low-output pickups
revive rock ‘n’ roll’s traditional roots. They’re versatile, too.
