1959 ES-335 Homage
Brazilian Rosewood, Curly Maple
Tobacco Burst

Body: Tobacco Burst 1959 ES-335 Homage
Price:  Please Contact

Woods: Curly Maple 4-ply body, Maple center block with Spruce spacers, Honduran Mahogany neck, Brazilian Rosewood fretboard, Holly headstock.

Wiring Diagram: Click Here.

Construction Details: A faithful recreation, aged to look the part. Created to replicate a 1959 ES-335 played for a few years and then stored in a closet. I do many vintage restorations, which makes the aging on this instrument very faithful. This guitar is a sonoral powerhouse. Carefully executed in details faithfully following the 1959 model year, with components aged accordingly.

Original Maple 4-ply body design, maple sourced from the same Michigan mill Gibson used back in 1959, with dimensions typical of the ’59 model year, including a juicy fat neck (0.940″ at the 1st fret), old Brazilian Rosewood thin-bound fretboard. Many ’59 correct details from pickguard to inlays to dimensions. Thin high VOC nitrocellulose lacquer, tinted for age.

Custom wound ’59 replica pickups unpotted with A2 AlNiCo neck and A4 AlNiCo bridge pickups, 7% tolerance vintage taper CTS pots, NOS PIO Russian capacitors, Switchcraft hardware and Gavin pushback wire creates an unmistakable vintage tone. Incredible resonance and sustain. Lush neck pickup provides smooth jazz tones, depth for the blues, or bridge pickup to punch out rock-n-roll.

Extensive nitro lacquer finish work to replicate the finest example of a period, pear-shaped 3-color tobacco burst. Constructed with fish glue – which is a variation of hot hide glue. An original ’59 like this would cost $40,000 … not practical except for the collector, and certainly a difficult guitar to take on stage. Here’s a rare chance to have the tone, look, and feel of the original at a fraction of the cost.

Notes: Subtle invisible upgrades – carbon fiber reinforced headstock/neck transition to ensure, unlike a Gibson, that this guitar never breaks a headstock. Dual action truss rod, EMI paint to minimize noise on stage. Comes in an SKB TSA case, matching Walker & Williams padded leather strap, and pure nickel 11-51 strings.
