Gibson ES-335 Dot, Graphite Metallic Overview.

The Gibson ES-335 DOT is the cornerstone of the Gibson ES line-up.  From its inaugural appearance in 1958, the Gibson ES-335 immediately set an unmatched standard. The pearloid dot inlay rosewood fingerboard on a hand-rolled Rounded ""C"" mahogany neck remind players where it all started. The all-new Memphis Historic Spec II (MHS II) humbucking pickups paired with our Memphis Tone Control Plus (MTC Plus) circuitry showcases the versatile Gibson ES tone that players have craved for over 60 years.  Tuning stability and precise intonation are provided by the Grover 'Milk Bottle' tuners, an ABR-1 bridge with brass saddles, and a Stopbar tailpiece.  Impressive Contemporary gloss finishes include Cherry Burst, Blues Burst, and Graphite Metallic.
