Here’s a brand new model, the Gibson ES235 Gloss thinline arch top, flat back, solid center block electric in translucent Cherry!

This is new for 2019 model from Gibson, and it has plenty going for it. Designed and originally built at the now-closed Gibson Memphis plant, this single cutaway, smaller body guitar is built in Nashville, Tennessee. It’s available in Ebony black, Cherry and Sunburst versions.

Gibson had good success in the 1950s and 1960s with the ES-125 model, and the ES-235 updates the concept with a solid center block. The top is arched, while the back is flat. The single-cutaway body is bound top and back, and built of 3-ply Maple – Poplar – Maple laminate for feedback rejection, with a Maple center block that goes from the tail to the ‘bridge’ side of the neck pickup. The neck is Mahogany, with an unbound Indian Rosewood fingerboard.

Hardware is standard Gibson, with retro Kluson style Gibson Deluxe individual tuners with plastic buttons, tune-o-matic bridge and stop tailpiece. A pair of BurstBucker Pro pickups are coupled with a three way toggle switch and individual volume and tone controls.

This model ships with a Gibson gig bag.

Here’s what the builder has to say about the new Gibson ES235 Gloss:

“The Gibson ES-235 is a brand-new design coming out of Memphis, Tennessee. Inspired by classic Gibson models like the ES-125 and the iconic Les Paul, players will find themselves ready to conquer any musical genre.

The ES-235 is built around a maple center block paired with spruce bracing. The result is maximum semi-hollowbody versatility.

The single-cutaway body design offers easy fret access across the entire rosewood fingerboard. Burstbucker Pro humbucking pickups and our Memphis Tone Circuit Plus (MTC Plus) ensure that you’re always ready to be heard.

Available in gloss finishes including Ebony, Vintage Sunburst, and Cherry. The ES-235 is destined to become an instant classic in the Gibson line-up. “
