The Historic Reissue ES-335 is back and better than ever thanks to a year of studying, scanning, and listening to original examples. The expert craftspeople at Gibson Custom Shop have rendered every contour, profile, inlay and color of the priceless vintage models in magnificent detail. The result is a playing and ownership experience that will keep you coming back for more. The 1959 Reissue models feature rounded cutaways, Medium C-shape neck profiles scanned from originals, dot inlays and vintage-replica parts.

During the Winter of 2023, we were invited to visit the Gibson Custom Shop in Nashville TN. We were fortunate to hand select the woods for this particular instrument.
