Woodstock Guitars


Ever since its introduction in 1958 Gibson’s legendary ES-335 has been hailed as one of the most versatile electric guitars ever produced, adept at everything from jazz, to country, to blues, to heavy rock. This ES-335 Studio, though, lives for one purpose: to rock your world like no other semi-hollow electric guitar ever.

While it retains the classic design elements and full build quality of the finest ES-335s, the ES-335 Studio from Gibson’s Memphis division strips away anything superfluous to focus like a laser on cranking out bone-crunching rock tone. This guitar has the same instantly familiar thinline, double-cutaway body styling from Gibson guitars seen in the hands of Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Alvin Lee and countless others, but the f-holes are eliminated to create a sleek looking top that is also more resistant to feedback. The electronics have been pared down to a single, super-hot Dirty Fingers Plus humbucking pickup in the bridge position, along with a single volume and tone pot. What more do you need to rock? Nothing—as the ES-335 Studio quickly proves, with the unparalleled playability that only a Gibson offers.

Equally hot-rodded looks are assured by the genuine smooth-satin nitrocellulose lacquer, paired with black hardware, tortoiseshell truss-rod cover and neck-joint cover, and a black Corian™ nut.

Body and Neck
The ES-335 Studio is constructed in the image of the original 335s of the late 1950s, with a semi-hollow body made from laminated maple with a bound Grade-AAA top layer and a solid maple center block, but without the traditional f-holes. The result is the perfect marriage of the traditional archtop’s looks and sonic depth, with the solidbody’s sustain and resistance to feedback. The neck is made from solid quarter-sawn mahogany, and topped with an unbound fingerboard made from baked maple, inlaid with simple pearloid dot position markers.

Pickups and Electronics
The ES-335 Studio is loaded with a single Dirty Fingers Plus humbucker, one of Gibson’s hottest pickups. For unbridled crunch and wailing lead tones, all with singing sustain, this pickup was born to rock out—yet it boasts surprising clarity for mellower moments. A single volume and tone control keep it simple.

Hardware and Plastics
The ES-335 Studio carries Gibson’s legendary Tune-o-matic bridge with and trapeze tailpiece, as well as high-quality Grover™ Rotomatic® tuners, all in black chrome. There’s no pickguard, but a tortoiseshell truss-rod cover and neck-joint cover lend an alternative touch of class.
