Ltd. Edition ES 335 PRO: The sound of rock and roll just got better!
The ES-335: The Rock and Roll Machine:The Epiphone Ltd. Edition ES-335 PRO, Epiphone's new version of the ground breaking semi-hollowbody ES-335, features the power of Epiphone's Alnico Classic PRO(TM) pickups with push/pull coil-splitting, bringing the classic sound of rock and roll to guitarists all over the world without the vintage price tag or vintage problems. Epiphone is long famous for its own original semi-hollowbody models from the '50s Kalamazoo, Michigan era, including the Riviera and the Sheraton. During the same time those guitars were being designed and constructed in Kalamazoo, the ES-335--first introduced in 1958--became a favorite of blues, rock, jazz, and pop artists for its elegant design and colorful tone combinations. Now, the Epiphone Ltd. Edition ES-335 PRO puts that classic sound plus Epiphone's custom refinements in the hands of guitarists everywhere.
Semi-hollow Design, Solid Craftsmanship:The Epiphone Ltd. Edition ES-335 PRO is constructed of premium laminated maple and birch with a mahogany center block and a hand-fitted, glued-in 24.75“ scale mahogany neck which features a 1960s SlimTaper(TM) “D” profile. The rosewood fingerboard has pearloid small block inlays, a 24.75“ scale, a 1.68“ nut, and a traditional dovewing Epiphone headstock with the classic '60s era Epiphone logo and ES-335 PRO in white on the truss rod cover. The fingerboard also features cream binding. The body top and back also feature single ply cream binding for a classic profile.
Ringin' Like A Bell With Alnico Classic PRO(TM) Power:The Ltd. Edition ES-335 PRO now features Epiphone Alnico Classic PRO(TM) 4-wire humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions, giving the Ltd. Edition ES-335 PRO a tonal palette that far exceeds any vintage ES-335. The Alnico Classic PROs(TM) feature Alnico V magnets for terrific humbucker sustain with a huge dynamic range that can go from clean to blues overdrive at a touch. And, the Ltd. Edition ES-335 PRO now features coil-splitting on both pickups via a push/pull control on the pickups' volume controls.
Epiphone Rock Solid Hardware:Epiphone leads the way in manufacturing pro guitars with rock solid hardware. The Ltd. Edition ES-335 PRO features quality, all-metal hardware including full-function volume and tone knobs using full-size 500K potentiometers matched with Epiphone's rugged, all-metal, 3-way toggle pickup selector switch for long-lasting performance.
