Summary: The Gibson ES-335 bass is a modern interpretation of the legendary semi-hollowbody EB-2 that was in production from 1958 to 1972. You get several playability and tone-enhancing improvements over the original, starting with a 34" scale, whereas the original was a short-scale instrument. There are still two humbuckers, but in the ES-335, Gibson has moved the neck pickup to the middle position for crisp note delineation.

Body: Laminated Maple with a gloss black finish.

Neck: Mahogany neck with a Rosewood fingerboard, 34” scale length, 20 frets, pearl dot inlays.

Pickups/Hardware: Dual humbuckers, 2x volume/2x tone/3-way pickup selector, adjustable bridge, Grover open gear tuning keys.

Cosmetics: This bass has a decent bit of wear. The hardware has started to tarnish. The body has light surface scratches throughout. Some areas on the top of the bass have worn to a satin-like finish. The back of the neck is in good shape and the frets still have a ton of life left. Overall, this bass has some cosmetic issues but still plays very well and sounds fantastic.

Playability: Our in-house guitar tech has inspected, setup, and restrung this instrument with a new set of strings. 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.

Weight: 9.2 lbs.

Case: This bass ships in the original hard-shell case, professionally packaged, and fully insured.
