If you prefer to have your guitar's tone do the talking, while downplaying aesthetic ornamentation, check out this Gibson Memphis ES-335 Dot. The guitar's semi-hollowbody construction imparts the guitar with the same airy tone with plenty of warmth that is the design's calling card. You'll find two vintage-correct Gibson Burstbucker humbucking pickups delivering the clarity and detail of vintage guitars. And the ES-335 Dot strips away extra inlays and binding for a more straightforward look. This ES-335 Dot is sure to stand out in the Hiendguitar Guitar Gallery.
The ES-335 Dot was designed for guitar players who want the performance of an ES-335, but without the ornamentation of the traditional model. The ES-335 Dot focuses firmly on optimal sound output, retains all elements that contribute to its legendary tone, and dispenses with the rest. You'll still enjoy Gibson USA humbucking pickups, expertly applied nitrocellulose finish, and a perfect setup. And this stripped-down ES-335 also offers a stripped-down price.
When it comes to capturing that classic Gibson tone, nothing beats the sound of the ES-335 Dot's Burstbucker pickups. You'll love the tight low end, complex midrange, and sweet highs you'll get out of these pickups — it's everything you expect when you pick up a Gibson. That's because Gibson designed their Burstbucker pickups to re-create the sound of the original PAF humbuckers to perfection. So if you want the time-tested tone of a vintage Gibson, then the ES-335 Dot is the guitar for you.
One of the reasons for the ES-335's enduring legacy is the guitar's maple construction. When combined with its semi-hollow design, the maple adds attack and note fundamental to your tone. And maple is also a great tonewood choice for increasing sustain, especially with the addition of the rosewood fretboard. The hollow wings of the ES-335 Dot keep the maple from giving the guitar too strident of a tone. And with the 335's excellent tonal balance, you'll have the ability to fit into any musical situation.
