April 1st Unveiling of Gibson Custom Shop Prototype ES-335 Model
One of Gibson’s most original and best guitar designs is the ES-335. For rock music it stands above its cousin the ES-330, because the 335 comes with a solid block of wood under the pickups. This eliminates the feedback that results when you plug a hollow body guitar into a cranked amplifier.
The ES-335 has gone through numerous revisions throughout the years. The ES-355 is a fancy version that included the varitone control.
The Trini Lopez Standard model is essentially an ES-335 body with diamond shaped F-holes and a six-on-a-side headstock.
The latest version that Gibson has implemented in its lineup in the ES-339, which is a smaller sized version of the ES 335.
Recently the Gibson Custom Shop unveiled the ESMM-335 model. I think they have come up with a winner.
