For your consideration, Garrett Park Guitars presents this 2011 Gibson ES-335 1963 Block reissue in Antique Red.
1963 ES-335 Block Reissue
The original “dot neck” ES-335 had already set the guitar world alight for half a decade with its powerful blend of arch top finesse and solid body power by the time the “block neck” came along in 1963, but the first major renovation of the design marked a major milestone in Gibson history nonetheless. Two new refinements, represented here in the Gibson Custom Shop’s 1963 ES-335 Block Reissue, took the seminal semi-hollow guitar to new heights of popularity, and sales spiked as a result. The first alteration was cosmetic: Gibson replaced the ES-335 fingerboard’s dot inlays with blocks, which both eased visibility and added an extra touch of class. The second was a change in playing feel: the guitar’s neck was given the fast, slim profile that was standard for Gibson in the ’60s, and popular with players of all genres. The result was the guitar that Eric Clapton, for one, used to power up blues-rock with the supergroup Cream, and which took the ES-335 in general to new heights of popularity.
