Overview

The Gibson ES-335 Dot has been known by more than one name over the last three decades, but it's undoubtedly singular in its popularity as one of Gibson's most well-known reissues. First known as the ES-335 Dot, then renamed the ES-335 Reissue in the '90s, this instrument is based on the technical specs of its 1960s predecessor. While specimens from the early '80s may command a higher asking price, all ES-335 Reissues are built from a semi-hollow maple body with a rosewood fingerboard, two humbuckers, and come with the identifying dot inlays. Its popularity over the years has landed the ES-335 Dot Reissue in the hands of many a famous guitarist, like Dave Grohl and Eric Clapton.

    Just bought a used ES-335. My first 335. It needed a set up, but I fell completely in love with it at rehearsal last night. I'm using it for blues/rock/reggae music through a Marshall. Amazingly playable. Full sound that still has an edge.
