GIBSON 1963 ES-335TDC Varitone Bigsby 2018 Sixties Cherry

Semi-acoustic electric guitar with Varitone switch and Bigsby vibrato, including case

With the Gibson 1963 ES-335TDC Varitone Bigsby 2018 Sixties Cherry, Gibson Memphis presents a very special interpretation of the legendary semi-hollow electric guitar, which with Varitone switch, Bigsby vibrato and Gibson MHS humbuckers provides the perfect basis for versatile vintage sounds between blues, rock and jazz. Gibson also relies on the authentic construction with a maple-poplar laminate body, which features a maple centre block, while the glued Mahaogni neck with "Rounded C" profile lies comfortably in the hand. Last but not least, the Gibson 1963 ES-335TDC is equipped with the classic Tune-O-Matic bridge and precise Kluson Deluxe tuners.

GIBSON 1963 ES-335TDC Varitone Bigsby 2018 Sixties Cherry F-Loch

The classically built 1963 ES-335TDC uses a semi-acoustic body made of maple-poplar laminate with solid centre block.

Gibson 1963 ES-335TDC in classic design

Following the classic"Electric Spanish" design, the 1963 ES-335TDC Varitone Bigsby has a body with back, top and sides made of three-layer maple-poplar laminate, which colours the tone with a woody acoustic timbre. The solid center block made of Silver Leaf Maple reliably prevents the occurrence of feedback at high volumes. The authentic vintage feel is further enhanced by the glued mahagnoi neck in a fleshy but not too strong "Rounded C" profile.

GIBSON 1963 ES-335TDC Varitone Bigsby 2018 Sixties Cherry Korpus

Two Gibson MHS humbuckers with six-stage Varitone switch deliver versatile vintage sounds between blues, rock and jazz on the guitar amplifier, which can also be decorated with the Bigsby vibrato.

MHS humbuckers meet Varitone switch

As absolutely authentic PAF replicas, the Gibson ES-335TDC Varitone Bigsby's MHS humbuckers feature a warm vintage sound that combines organic dynamic behavior with vocal mids and an airy high frequency range, leading to expressive electric guitar playing between blues, rock and jazz. The six-stage Gibson Varitone switch is also on board for an extended range of sounds. In addition to the true bypass in position 1, five notch filters can be used to adjust the frequency range. In addition, the familiar volume and tone controls are available for each pickup.

GIBSON 1963 ES-335TDC Varitone Bigsby 2018 Sixties Cherry Kopfplatte

Six Kluson Deluxe tuners with authentic Double Ring Keystone wings provide an exact and stable tuning.

Bigsby Vibrato and classic hardware

Last but not least, the 1963 ES-335TDC Varitone Bigsby 2018 Sixties Cherry convinces with a classic hardware configuration. Accordingly, the strings are held on the body by the Bigsby B-7 vibrato, with which dazzling changes in pitch can be created to decorate solos or chords. From here the strings are led over the traditional Gibson ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge, which with two thumb screens and six string riders allows an optimal adjustment of intonation and string position. Kluson Double Ring Keystone tuners behind the nylon saddle also ensure precise and stable tuning even with frequent use of the vibrato arm.
