The Gibson ES-335 is an iconic semi-hollow electric guitar that has been highly regarded for its versatility, tone, and classic design. The ES-335 Cherry from 1999 is a specific model that has gained a strong reputation among guitarists.
The ES-335 Cherry features a semi-hollow body construction, which means it has a solid block of wood running through the center with hollow “wings” on the sides. This design provides the guitar with the warm, rich tones of a hollowbody instrument, while also offering greater resistance to feedback and increased sustain due to the solid center block.
The 1999 ES-335 Cherry has a Heritage cherry red finish, which is a classic color choice. The body is made of maple with a rosewood top, and it is complemented by a mahogany neck.
The ES-335 is equipped with a pair of original Gibson humbucking pickups. These pickups deliver a powerful, fat sound with plenty of clarity and warmth. The ES-335 is known for its ability to cover a wide range of musical styles, from blues and jazz to rock and beyond. The dual volume and tone controls, along with a three-way pickup selector switch, allow for precise tonal shaping and versatility.
The condition of this guitar is Good. There are obvious signs of usage such as finish wears throughout, and scratches and dings. There are no structural damage, however. And the electronics works perfectly as they should. The truss rod works well in both directions, and the frets are about 70-80% tall. The guitar is all original and comes with the original hardshell case, and a truss rod tool.
