Often touted as the world's first semi-hollowbody guitar, the Gibson ES-335 is an icon! From Jazz to Blues, this guitar can be seen on stages all across the world. Prior to 1952 Gibson only produced hollowbody style guitars. In that year Gibson invented what would become known as the Les Paul. These solid body guitars allowed for more sustain but lacked the darker, warmer tone of hollow bodies. The 335 was born out of a want to combine the best qualities of the two styles. A solid block of wood runs from the neck to the end of the body and the f holes allow the wing chambers to resonate.
Famous ES-335 players include: B.B. King, Eric Clapton, Alex Lifeson, Dave Grohl, and Chuck Berry!
