ES 335 was introduced back in the 1958 and it has become an instant classic. ES-335 has remained continuously in the catalog to this very day and it shows no signs of aging, or becoming obsolete. Back in the 1950s and 1960s, various ES models were introduced and some of them are still in production. Over the years, ES line`s popularity has not dropped and they still rock the guitar world with the same intensity. Semi-hollow construction was a revolutionary feat back in 1950s, as it married the solids and hollow-bodied jazz boxes, taking the best of both worlds. Size, playability and powerful pickups were taken from the solids and the rich resonance and big tone were inherited from the jazz guitars. Central block made of solid wood solved the problem of feedback, while the hollow wings gave the tone space to reverberate freely. Today, Gibson USA introduces the ES-335 Studio. Studio is one of the introduction tiers in Gibson catalog. It is a budget-oriented concept with heavy focus on tone and build quality. Decorations and fancy hardware appointments are intentionally thrown out of the picture. ES-335 Studio comes with a semi-hollow body made of laminated maple back and sides, solid maple center block and carved maple top. There are no "f" holes and there is no binding. Ebony and Midnight Blue color schemes are finished in gloss and have black hardware. Stability is ensured with a set of Grover tuners on the classic Gibson headstock and two-part bridge on the opposite side of the 24-3/4" scale. Tune-o-matic bridge is backed by a trapezoid tailpiece. Somewhat surprisingly, Gibson went for the "less is more" philosophy even in the pickups compartment, so there`s only the Dirty Fingers Plus humbucker in the bridge position. Volume and tone knobs are featured in the controls unit. This open-coiled humbucker offers a wide range of tones and possibilities, though. Neck is made of quartersawn mahogany and it is topped with a standard 22-fret fingerboard made of baked maple. Frets on this unbound fingerboard are marked with simple dot inlays. Gibson sets the MSRP at $2,115 for both the Ebony and Midnight Blue options.
