  • Description

    The 2016 1958 ES-335 VOS pays homage to the first 335s that were introduced back in 1958, offering players a spot-on re-creation of the classic original "dot neck" semi. The 1958 ES-335 VOS showcases all the historically-accurate detailing that you'd find on the original 335s.

    Crafted with vintage-grade 3-ply plain maple top, back and sides, the 2016 1958 ES-335 sports a period-correct body shape with those iconic "Mickey Mouse ear" cutaways along with a lightweight maple centerblock and quartersawn Adirondack spruce braces with accurate hide glue adhesive. The neck also features a classic Mortise & Tenon joint with hide glue adhesive. The Historic body and neck construction lend to this modern classic's authentic 335 tone and resonance. The perfect mixture of timeless Gibson playability and style, traditional "C" mahogany neck is topped with an unbound rosewood fingerboard with vintage-correct frets and classic dot inlays. The neck also comes fitted with a tubeless Historic truss rod, which is proven to enhance both resonance and sustain.

    For that authentic late '50s tone, the 1958 ES-335 VOS comes equipped with a pair of historically-accurate MHS humbuckers that are routed through a traditional control compliment featuring matched 550K pots. This allows this ES-335 to serve up all those vintage-inspired tones that were made famous by those legendary, sought-after PAF pickups.

    The 2016 1958 ES-335 comes dressed in your choice of beautiful '58 Natural or '58 Burst nitro lacquer VOS finishes to provide a gracefully aged, vintage aesthetic. The VOS'd period-correct nickel hardware also offers a gently aged look. This hardware includes a set of vintage-style Kluson tuners and a No Wire ABR bridge paired with a lightweight stopbar tailpiece. Includes period-correct hardshell case and Certificate of Authenticity.
