The 2018 ES-335 Metallic Top series pairs the versatile ES-335 with a slightly different take on the celebrated Gibson gold top finish. Utilizing mid-century American automotive paint samples, each guitar is finished with an eye-catching metallic top. Available finishes include Baroque Gold Metallic, Ice Blue Metallic, Wood Rose Metallic, and Silver Metallic. Beyond the beautiful finish, each guitar features a quarter sawn mahogany neck with dark rosewood fingerboard, weight-relieved maple centerblock with Adirondack spruce bracing, ABR-1 bridge with titanium saddles, Grover "Milk Bottle" Rotomatic tuners, and our MTC Premiere control assembly with PAF-style MHS pickups.
