GIBSON 1961 ES-335 Sixties Cherry #80046

Semi-Hollow electric guitar with slim neck profile and Gibson MHS humbuckers, including case and certificate

With the Gibson 1961 ES-335 Sixties Cherry, the Gibson Facility from Memphis, Tennessee presents an authentic new edition of the legendary semi-acoustic electric guitar that captivated guitarists in the early 1960s with its slim neck and first-class sound. Accordingly, the Semi-Hollow guitar has a body of three-layer maple-poplar laminate and a glued mahogany neck in a fast slim taper profile. With two Gibson MHS humbuckers, authentic vintage sounds for blues, jazz or rock are available on the amplifier, while traditional hardware in the form of Tune-O-Matic bridge, aluminum stop bar and Kluson tuners complete the equipment of the Gibson 1961 ES-335.

Gibson 1961 ES-335 with traditional construction and fast neck

Following the model from the 1960s, the Gibson 1961 ES-335 has a traditionally built body with solid center block and maple-poplar laminate back, top and sides, which characterizes the sound with a woody acoustic timbre without being susceptible to feedback. Another absolute highlight is without a doubt the glued mahogany neck, which is extremely comfortable to play thanks to the "Slim Taper" profile and rosewood fingerboard with rolled binding.

Gibson 1961 ES-335 2018 Sixties Cherry 80046 Pickups
Two Gibson MHS humbuckers deliver warm vintage sounds with the woody timbre of semi-acoustic construction.

Gibson MHS Humbucker for authentic vintage sounds between blues and rock

Two Gibson MHS humbuckers in neck and bridge position do the electrical sound conversion of the Gibson 1961 ES-335 Sixties Cherry. Legitimate reincarnations of the legendary PAF humbuckers of the golden 1950s and 1960s, Memphis Historic Spec pickups equipped with Alnico magnets deliver a warm vintage sound that skilfully captures the timbre of semi-acoustic construction and provides the basis for traditional blues, jazz and rock sounds. Pickups are classically controlled by 3-way switches and separate volume and tone controls.

Gibson 1961 ES-335 2018 Sixties Cherry 80046 Tuners
Kluson tuners with authentic "Double Ring Keystone" grand pianos guarantee an exact tuning of the Gibson 1961 ES-335.

Vintage Style Hardware

Last but not least, the Gibson 1961 ES-335 Sixties Cherry convinces with high-quality hardware in authentic Vintage Stlye. Accordingly, the body uses the established combination of an aluminium stopbar and a Gibson ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge, which allows not only an optimal string position but also precise intonation adjustment. Behind the nylon saddle, Kluson Double Ring Keystone tuners on the headstock ensure an exact tuning of the electric guitar.
