When Gibson’s new management team promised to “restore [the company] to its golden era”, the 2019 ES-335 DOT is the kind of instrument that guitar enthusiasts hoped they would end up building. With almost no variance from the original 1958 design, no expense has been spared in the construction of this superlative instrument. There’s a Rosewood fingerboard on a quarter sawn mahogany neck, a 3-ply Maple/Poplar/Maple top with a gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, Gibson’s own MHS II pickups - the list goes on. Of course, as with anything great, this guitar's real magic here is more than just the sum of it’s parts. The resonance, sustain and overall character of this 335 is something truly special. You owe it to yourself to see what we mean.
