Summary: Jim James is the vocalist, guitarist, producer, and primary songwriter for My Morning Jacket. He's also found success with various solo projects. His new Gibson ES-335 is as versatile and boundless as he is, with the features he prefers, including two Calibrated T-Type pickups paired with dual volume and tone controls that are hand-wired with CTS potentiometers, a mahogany SlimTaper neck with an Indian rosewood fretboard, Graph Tech nut, 22 medium jumbo frets, and Kluson Waffleback tuners, paired with a lightweight aluminum ABR-1 bridge and Stop Bar tailpiece, anchored by steel thumb-wheels and tailpiece studs to keep everything solidly in tune. The Jim James ES-335 also has a Walnut nitrocellulose lacquer finish, Jim James logo on the truss rod cover, an owl emblem on the back of the headstock, and comes with a custom Jim James owl emblem hardshell case.

Body: 3-ply Maple/Poplar/Maple construction finished a nitrocellulose lacquer gloss finish, Spruce bracing, Maple center block, single-ply cream binding.

Cosmetics: This guitar shows very little signs of use with just a bit of pick wear on the pickguard and light scuff on the back of the body. The back of the neck is clean and the frets are in great shape.

Playability: Our in-house guitar tech has inspected, setup, and restrung this guitar with a new set of 10’s. The neck is straight, the truss rod is fully functional, and the action has been setup low and comfortable. The frets are in great shape with no major grooves or divots from use and it plays beautifully up and down the fretboard with no dead spots or choking out.
