Gibson 1963 ES335 Block Reissue Cherry, 2018

Gibson 1963 ES335 Block Reissue Cherry, 2018

The 1963 Gibson ES335 Block Reissue re-creates the early 1960s revision of the groundbreaking ES-335 thinline models, in particular the version used in Cream by Eric Clapton. Built as a limited edition historic reissue, the Gibson ES335 Block Reissue is as close as most people can get to the originals. This example was built at the Gibson Nashville plant during 2018, and is in excellent condition with virtually no wear.

Gibson Custom CS356 Thinline Faded Cherry, 2008

Gibson Custom CS356 Thinline Faded Cherry, 2008

The Gibson Custom CS356 was the top level version of the Gibson Custom CS336, and was built from 2002 to 2008. Like the CS-336, it was based on a carved Solid Figured Maple top on a chambered single-piece block of Mahogany, routed out to provide the sides, back, center block and tone chambers. Based on its 5-digit serial number with an 8 as its first digit, this example dates to 2008 and as such would be one of the last built.  It has very little wear,  and is in great condition with only a few minor bumps.

Gibson CS336 Thinline Compact Archtop Faded Cherry, 2004

Gibson CS336 Thinline Compact Archtop Faded Cherry, 2004

Introduced in late 2001 and built until 2010, the Gibson CS336 is based on a scaled-down ES-335, but there are some significant differences. The body blends a carved, two piece solid Maple top with a solid piece of Mahogany, shaped and routed to provide the inner resonant chambers and the solid center block. In the ES-335 design, the top, sides and back are built traditionally using Maple laminate, with a solid Maple center block added. On this model, the bound fingerboard is Indian Rosewood with dot position markers.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES335 Dot Thinline Heritage Cherry, 2012

The Gibson ES335 Dot reissue draws from the groundbreaking 1958 ES-335 that blended archtop and solidbody guitar styles. Gaining immediate acceptance by players in many genres, this model has been in production continuously since its introduction. Here we’re looking at what looks like a ‘Plain Top’ version of the Gibson ES335 Dot, built at the now-closed Gibson Memphis plant and dating to June 7, 2012. In terms of construction and hardware, these are identical to the much more expensive ‘Figured Top’ models; the difference is the figuring on the Maple laminates used for the top, sides and back.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES335 Stop Tailpiece Conversion Cherry, 1968

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES335 Stop Tailpiece Conversion Cherry, 1968

Introduced in early 1958, the Gibson ES335 was an immediate hit with most players who had been using full bodied archtop guitars, because it addressed very real issues with increasing stage volumes. It was adopted by players in almost every genre, from country to jazz, R&B to rock. Originally equipped with a stop tailpiece and adjustable tune-o-matic or ABR bridge, in 1965 Gibson switched to a traditional simple trapeze tailpiece, and continued to do so until discontinuing the model in 1981. In the meantime, many guitarists removed the trapeze and had stop tailpieces installed on their ES335s.
