The Gibson Custom 1959 ES-335 Reissue is a true classic.  Originally released in 1958 as Gibson's first semi-hollowbody electric guitar, this model has been beloved by guitarists for over six decades, used in a variety of settings.  Its combination of tonewoods - maple/poplar/maple body and solid mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard - produce a warm, resonant sound. The Custombucker Alnico III pickups further enhance this classic instrument's unique tone. 

The 1959 Reissue models feature rounded cutaways, Medium C-shape neck profiles scanned from originals, dot inlays and vintage-replica parts.   Gibson Custom's Vintage Original Sheen finish option is standard on Custom Shop Historic Reissue models. This VOS finish includes aged components that provide an artisanal, vintage hue. The nitrocellulose coating is buffed to a semi-gloss luster, perfectly simulating the kind of care a guitar receives from years of usage.

The Custom Shop Custombucker pickups of the ’59 ES-335 Reissue model sound straight up amazing. Powered by Alnico III magnets, you'll be able to achieve classic hollowbody-style sounds for all styles of music from warm jazz to dirty blues. Utilizing CTS audio taper pots and paper-in-oil capacitors, individualized volume and tone controls, this guitar gives you the ability effortlessly craft a variety of tones.

 Any Gibson Custom Shop guitar is a magical thing, and this one especially stands out as special.  A hardshell case is included, as well as a COA.  Get it today before it's gone!
