GIBSON USA Custom Shop Birds-Eye ES-335 Dot Reissue "Natural + Rosewood" (2011)


Looking for versatility? It’s hard to beat a 335! The warmth of a hollowbody with the sustain of a solid body. All of the classic specs. As you can see from the pics, this is an absolute stunner- the top, back, and sides are adorned with gorgeous bird's eye figuring Limited edition run straight from the custom shop. The body is laminated maple with a maple sustain block. The 1 piece mahogany neck features a bound rosewood fingerboard with pearl dot inlays. Original Burstbucker Humbuckers dish out big tone. Grover Rotomatic tuners, a Stopbar tailpiece and Tuneomatic bridge round out the hardware. The finish is a gorgeous Natural Birds-eye AAA+ lacquer and set off with nickel hardware. What a great looking guitar!

This ES-335 would make a great addition to most any gear arsenal. Plays great. Slim to medium neck carve (i.e. it ain’t fat) with good action. The pickups sound great with nice warmth and articulation. Everything works as it should. Condition wise, this is a solid guitar that has seen very Minor use. The condition is Mint so it has obviously been well cared for – the finish is as clean as when it left the factory. No dings, dints or any nasty scuff marks or bruises. The Rosewood fingerboard and frets are all fine. All the control knobs and switches function as they should. All the hardware is original including the strap buttons. In short, no issues whatsoever. Comes in the original hard-shell case and COA.

ES-335’s are well loved for versatile tones and killer looks. Overall the 335 is a very infectious guitar, that is loaded with that vintage soul, character and expression and they are indeed great assets to be found in such a wonderful instrument
