The Ltd. Ed. ES-335 PRO brings a vintage workhorse into the future with Epiphone’s Alnico Classic PRO™ humbuckers and coil-splitting. The original ES-335 was a breakthrough guitar design when it was introduced in 1958. In many ways, the “335” was every bit as revolutionary as the solid-body Les Paul. The ES-335 put classic guitar styling – like the iconic archtop profile and violin inspired f-holes – into the hands of kids who were hungry to play rock and roll and look cool. The ES-335 was light. It was loud. And it definitely wasn’t a traditional jazz guitar. Best of all, it was a new sound.
Now, Epiphone introduces the Ltd. Ed. ES-335 PRO, a new take on the legendary semi-hollow body archtop with all the classic ES-335 features, but now with Epiphone’s Alnico Classic PRO™ pickups with coil-splitting along with the superb build quality and great sound that you’ve come to expect from Epiphone. Finicky vintage models (with vintage problems) can’t compete with the Ltd. Ed. ES-335 PRO, which is simply one of the best deals going today for guitar players who want the classic sound of an ES-335 at an affordable price.
