Like the Les Paul, the ES-335 stands as one of Gibson's all-time most iconic models. The ES-335 is a semi-hollowbody guitar which means that it has a solid block of wood running through its centre with hollow wings on either side. This construction style maintains the open tone of a hollowbody while helping to reduce feedback. The ES-335 was introduced in 1958 and has remained in production in various forms ever since.
The official model designation of the ES-335 is ES-335TD, with the TD standing for thinline, double pickups.

The Gibson ES-335 is one of the most versatile guitars ever created. It is a truly classic design which is suitable for literally all style. The semi-hollowbody and dual ’57 Gibson humbucker pickups combine to produce everything from stinging blues to thick rock growls and sweet singing sustain.
Some 335’s tend to suffer from neck problems, but this one is straight up – no breaks, fractures, splits, repairs or issues of any kind. It plays sweetly and sounds like a good 335 should – lots of woody goodness from the neck pickup, tons of bitey growl in the bridge position, and sweet twangy funkiness in between.
Comes in its original Gibson hardshell case in great condition.
