I can play many styles of music on this guitar. I put heavier strings on it and had no trouble resetting the intonation with this bridge.


Very nice clean sound. As always with electrics, get a good amp!


My 17 year old son thinks the guitar is ugly. I think it’s beautiful! To each his own.


Gibson’s necks (rosewood in this case)play more like traditional guitars than Fenders and that’s good for me cause I’m primarily an acoustic player.


I can’t understand why the ES-335 is $1100+ more than this ES-333. I know the pick-ups are different but not better on the 335 and the 335 is a full gloss with some inlay but this guitar is really fine! Seems like a real good value to me.

Other Comments

I’d love to get some other feedback on this guitar because I know more about acoustic flattops than archtop electrics. I can only tell you that I played every electric in the shop and I ended up with this one.

Plays great, sounds better.


Really a great sounding guitar. If you haven’t used a semi-hollow body, you are missing it. Blends with well with other instruments, but will cut through when you want it to. Wonderful with an tube amp.


I don’t care for satin finishes, so I CAREFULLY buffed it to a shine. I also add nickel pickup covers, which was inexpensive, and dressed it up just enough, and evened out the tone just a little. I like the bound neck better than the 335 dot, but that is just personal preference. Also replaced knobs with gold top hats. Now it looks classy without being gaudy.


There is nothing like a good American Made guitar!


With proper care, this guitar will last a lifetime.


EVERY guitar, regardless of price rage, needs to be setup, frets leveled, neck adjusted and so on, when new. This guitar was no exception. Gibson saved money on factory setup on this model, but who cares, you have to have it setup anyway. The construction and materials are the same as any es335. I think this is the best value Gibson Semi-hollow body out there.
