Take a walk down memory lane with the Gibson Custom 1958 ES-335, a guitar that doesn't just replicate history but resurrects it. This limited edition marvel celebrates the groundbreaking 1958 debut of the ES-335, and it's an incredible guitar brimming with period-correct appointments. One of only 130 produced, it's a rare gem that's perfect for discerning collectors and musicians seeking a top-shelf piece with a rich and storied heritage.

Built with a 3-ply maple/poplar/maple semi-hollow body, the Gibson Custom 1958 ES-335 delivers a resonant tone that's crisp, dynamic, and vibrant. Pushing its sound further is a duo of unpotted Custombucker pickups, expertly engineered to provide an unbelievable lineup of '50s rock 'n' roll tones. Whether you need bright, howling lead tones or the fat, open sound of a vintage P.A.F., these pickups deliver. Rounded out with CTS pots and Paper-in-Oil capacitors, the guitar offers a rich, nuanced, and detailed sound faithful to the '58 ES-335.

Tone isn't all this beauty has to offer - it plays like a dream, too. Its '58 fat "C" mahogany neck is slightly chunky, making it great for players looking to lay down classic rock riffs. Guitarists will also appreciate its historically-accurate unbound rosewood fingerboard, 22 narrow tall frets, and Kluson single-line tuners, all of which contribute to its impeccable playability.

Aesthetically, this guitar is nothing short of breathtaking. Its Faded Tobacco Burst finish has a clean, classic look that's unabashedly vintage. Meanwhile, its Murphy Lab Heavy Aged treatment simulates the wear of a well-gigged '50s Gibson - expect nicks, finish checking, and patina'd hardware. Together, these elements flawlessly capture the style and spirit of the original 1958 ES-335, allowing players to own a significant piece of Gibson's illustrious history without the vintage markup.

The Gibson Custom Shop 1958 ES-335 Murphy Lab Heavy Aged is more than just a guitar; it's a bridge to the past crafted to honor Gibson's rich legacy while embracing the masterful craftsmanship of the present. Don't miss the chance to own a pivotal piece of music history - contact us today for more information about this remarkable Gibson guitar!
