The Iconic “Block Neck”
Although the ES-335 kicked off with the “dot neck” in 1958, many players have always preferred the “block neck” version of the mid ‘60s. This beautifully re-created 1963 ES-335 TDC includes the correct body shape with narrower horns and rolled binding on a dark rosewood fingerboard for a soft playing feel. Our MTC Historic control assembly paired with PAF-style MHS Humbucking pickups provides that classic Gibson semi-hollowbody tone. Available in Sixties Cherry VOS finish.
