2012 Gibson CS Joe Bonamassa ES-335
For your consideration, Garrett Park Guitars presents this 2012 Gibson CS Joe Bonamassa ES-335.
Gibson has teamed up with Joe Bonamassa to faithfully recreate his 1961 Es-335 resulting in an instant classic!
The Bonamassa ES-335 has the standard maple/poplar/maple three-ply body, but like Joe’s original ’61, sports a center seam like the two-piece maple top on a Les Paul. Additionally, the Vintage Original Spec (VOS) sunburst finish on it was carefully matched to follow that of his original guitar. The neck is mahogany with a nicely streaked rosewood board and a neck that is .050″ smaller than Gibson’s current 1959 profile. The edges of the fretboard have a very nice rolled feel, and the binding throughout is aged cream. The headstock carries tulip-buttoned TonePros tuners, a holly veneer, and a nylon nut. The aged hardware includes an ABR-1 bridge and Gibson’s deluxe lightweight aluminum stop bar. The volume and tone controls are from CTS, and the accompanying knobs are period-correct gold with silver-top knobs and a single gold “top hat” knob for the neck pickup’s tone control. Like most current production ES guitars, Joe’s features ’57 Classic humbuckers, but with the addition of aged covers. Comes with the original hard shroud case.
Serial Number: JB 049
