Product information - GIBSON 1959 ES-335 Vintage Natural Ultra Light Aged

Semihollow electric guitar with Late Fifties Appointments from the Gibson Custom Shop, including case and certificate

An authentic recreation of the famous Late Fifties ES-335, the Gibson Custom Shop Gibson 1959 ES-335 Vintage Natural Ultra Light Aged features historically accurate appointments and tasteful aging by the Gibson Murphy Lab. The replica of the Semihollow legend is composed of a premium wood selection, hand-wired electronic components and an authentic Hardware finish. Including certificate and Gibson Hardshell Case!

Traditional Semihollow Construction

The ES-335 as a representative of the semi-hollow construction has a classically crafted body, which is made of three-ply laminate of maple and poplar wood. The laminate construction, which has been tried and tested since the ES-175, is complemented by a solid center block made of maple, which favors the resonance transmission of the strings into the body and ensures that the ES-335 can be played at high gain settings without any problems. As a special feature of the '59 model, historically correct dot inlays are used on the 22-fret fretboard made of East Indian rosewood.

Authentic Electronics Equipment

The hand-wired circuitry of the Gibson 1959 ES-335 Vintage Natural Ultra Light Aged is also composed of two hand-wound custom bucker pickups, high-quality components from CTS and Switchcraft , and real oil-paper capacitors to get as close as possible to the sound and electronics layout of the prototype. The two hand-wound dual pickups are billed as replicas of the coveted PAF-humbucker and offer a moderate output that's up for all kinds of fun, from expressive cleans to steamy crunch tones.

Classic Hardware and Nitro Lacquer with Murphy Aging

For the right look and feel of a distinctive replica of the '59 ES-335 model, all the expertise of Murphy Lab, founded by Tom Murphy, comes into play. The aging experts have thoroughly examined numerous preserved models of the golden Gibson era in order to be able to reproduce the paint texture, Hardware aging and typical playing traces of old originals as true to detail as never before. The result is a successful aging process at Ultra Light Aged level, representing the condition of an instrument that has been enormously well cared for over decades, with minimal nitro lacquer cracks and slight Hardware aging.
