ES-359

There’s no truer sign of the Gibson Custom Shop’s dedication to improvement and innovation than the ES-359, which was unveiled in 2008. At its heart, the ES-359 is a luxuriously appointed version of the ES-339 – a flexible tone machine with edge and bite at any volume. What sets the ES-359 apart is its gold hardware, Grover tuning pegs, and an ebony fingerboard with large mother-of-pearl block inlays to accentuate the classic elements of this innovative guitar’s appearance.




History

There’s no truer sign of the Gibson Custom Shop’s dedication to improvement and innovation than the ES-359, which was unveiled in 2008. At its heart, the ES-359 is a luxuriously appointed version of the ES-339 – a flexible tone machine with edge and bite at any volume. What sets the ES-359 apart is its gold hardware, Grover tuning pegs, and an ebony fingerboard with large mother-of-pearl block inlays to accentuate the classic elements of this innovative guitar’s appearance.

Both the ES-359 and ES-339 trace their roots to the introduction of the ES-335 and ES-355, the world’s first semi-hollowbody guitars, in 1958. They are part of Gibson’s continuing quest to optimally wed the dark, rich tone of hollowbody guitars with the edgy command of solidbodies – with the added benefit of a solidbody’s dimensions. The ES-359 employs a maple/poplar/maple laminate and boasts another small design improvement over classic ES-335 and ES-355 models – the input jack is mounted on the rim rather than on the body of the guitar.

Body

Like all ES models, the ES-359 has a body with two rounded wing chambers and f-holes, but with solidbody-like dimensions: 13-inches wide, 16-inches long, and 1 11/16th-inch deep. Finishes available are lacquered ebony or vintage sunburst. The neck is one-piece mahogany for classic Gibson resonance and sustain. There are 22 frets on the model’s ebony fingerboard, which has large mother-of-pearl block inlays and a single-ply cream binding.

Unlike the ES-339, which has fat and thin neck options, the ES-359 comes with a Lucille-type profile neck which tapers more and is fatter at the 12th fret than the ES-339.  The scale length is 24-3/4" with roughly a 1-11/16" width at the nut. The headstock has high-quality Grover tuners and multi-ply binding on the top and back.

Hardware

The other major Gibson innovation in the ES-359 figured top model is the patented Memphis Tone Circuit. Using a logarithmic system to analyze the way a guitar’s volume controls affect tone, the Custom Shop’s engineers developed special 500-k frequency audio taper pots to preserve high end as the volume decreases, giving the ES-359 a consistently sweeter, brighter, punchier tone than other guitars of its ilk as it gets quieter.

Besides the Memphis Tone Circuit, the ES-359 model’s electronics are pure Gibson: two ’57 Classic humbuckers, two volume pots, two tone pots, and a three-way selector switch. Additionally there’s an ABR-1 bridge and a stopbar tailpiece; all hardware in gold. The guitar comes wearing Gibson Brite Wire .010 strings inside a Custom Shop case, with a certificate of authenticity.
