Gibson ES-335 Traditional 2018 Antique Faded Cherry

The Gibson ES-335 Traditional, Antique Faded Cherry (2018) features a set of hand-wired MHS humbuckers with orange drop capacitors, delivering that recognisable Gibson tone that guitarists love. Crafted from a combination of maple, poplar and maple, players can achieve a warm, resonant tone with plenty of acoustic projection thanks to the pair of ''F'' soundholes. For added comfort, the quarter-sawn mahogany neck features a ''C'' shaped profile, along with rolled binding for fluid hand flexibility across the whole rosewood fingerboard. Other features include an ABR-1 bridge with titanium saddles, a die-cast zinc tailpiece with locking studs and black top hat controls knobs with silver inserts. Finally, this stunning guitar is delivered in a hardshell case, along with an official Gibson accessory kit.

Hollow Body

Like others in the new 2018 lineup, the Gibson ES-335 Traditional guitar features a 3-ply maple/poplar/maple body, delivering a bright, and precise tone with a balanced response. In addition, a pair of traditional ''F'' sound holes are also included, and not only offer a classic appearance, but deliver resonance and acoustic projection. Finished with an attractive Antique Faded Cherry finish, the ES-335 not only sounds great but looks extremely impressive.

Comfortable Neck & Fingerboard

A C shaped neck profile is also included, which allows for fluid hand flexibility across the whole fingerboard. For added comfort, the neck's binding is rounded off, offering a comfortable fit to the contours of the player's hand. Coupled with a rosewood fingerboard, players can achieve a warm tone with a natural feel.

Real Bone Nut

The Gibson ES-335 hollowbody guitar features an authentic bone nut, which offers an enhanced tone and sustain over traditional plastic and tusq nuts, and improves the vibration transfer between the string and tuning machines without dampening the tone.

Vintage MHS Humbucking Pickups

Loaded with two hand-wired MHS humbucking pickups, the Gibson ES-335 delivers a vintage style tone with an airy and biting response. Featuring unbalanced coils and Alnico II magnets with under wound design, the MHS pickups are perfect for a variety of styles and offer a detailed and articulate response. This 2018 hollowbody guitar also features orange drop capacitors for optimum tonal shaping.

ABR Bridge With Titanium Saddles

The Gibson ES-335 Traditional guitar features an ABR-1 bridge, offering incredible string stability and a truly comfortable performance. Its high-quality construction makes it extremely reliable, holding onto the string tension while maximising the transfer of vibrations for an enhanced sustain and vintage tone.

Classic Gibson Styling

The Gibson ES-335 Traditional is decorated with a full host of classic appointments that make it instantly recognisable as a Gibson. These include black top hat control knobs with silver inserts, Grover 'milk bottle' Rotomatic tuners, 5-ply black pickguard and its elegant double cutaway design. Players will also love the vibrant Antique Faded Cherry finish, that will stand out on any stage.

Gibson Memphis Series

Every Gibson Memphis guitar receives an ultra-precise Plek Pro setup, which optimises the fingerboard and nut for perfect action and intonation. Gibson's world-class luthiers took painstaking care with every detail of the ES-335, including fine touches like orange drop capacitors, hardware, and stunning nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
