You are looking at a Gibson 2016 ES-335 Figured Semi-Hollow Body Electric Guitar Faded Lightburst, serial number 10517728. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (8 lbs, 5.0 oz.)

Putting the 'class' in classic, the 2016 ES-335 Figured gives you everything you'd expect from the original semi and more! From its elegant AAA-grade figured maple top, back, and sides down to its wide array of features, the 2016 ES-335 Figured is sure to satisfy!

For that classic ES tone, resonance and style, the body is made from gorgeous 3-ply figured maple top, back and sides, and features a maple centerblock, spruce braces and mahogany rim, and a pair of F-holes. Boasting cream binding and available in your choice of Faded Lightburst, Cherry and Natural high-gloss nitro lacquer finishes, the 2016 ES-335 Figured offers a truly elegant aesthetic. For smooth playability, accurate intonation and superb player comfort, the mahogany neck is now carved into a fuller rounded "C" profile and carries a rosewood fretboard. Pearloid block fingerboard inlays and cream binding offer an old-school '60s 335 vibe.

If you crave that coveted vintage Gibson tone, look no further. The 2016 ES-335 Figured comes fitted with a pair of Burstbucker 1 and 2 pickups with historically "unmatched" bobbin windings to deliver the timeless tone of those classic "Patent Applied For" humbuckers. Yielding a sense of familiarity, the 2016 ES-335 Figured features a classic 2 Tone/2 Volume control layout.

The 2016 ES-335 Figured comes equipped with high-performance hardware including a bone nut for durability and smooth tuning, a set of Grover Milk Bottle Rotomatic tuners with an 18:1 ratio for improved tuning precision, an updated ABR-1 bridge with durable titanium saddles for enhanced sustain, presence and clarity, and a locking stop bar tailpiece for enhanced resonance and sustain.

Other features include an F-hole emblem engraved truss rod cover, redesigned neck dimensions for added stability, strength and playability, and a Historic truss rod assembly for superior adjustability. Comes with the full protection of a hardshell case and includes the Certificate of Authenticity.
