Tonal Evaluation

This super-rad '61 ES-335 is a killer example of a warm, clear semi-hollow! The bass response is rich and delicious, but it has vintage character that lends it a dry, clear character. The top-end is open and airy, and the upper-midrange will cut like a samurai sword if you pick hard. If you ease off with your right hand, you will be rewarded will beautiful angry church bell note bloom. The bridge pickup is muscular and smooth, and its touch tensitive midrange makes it a delight to play chunky rhythms and searing leads. The neck pickup is remarkably transparent, and it has wonderful woody resonance in the low mids. Anyone seeking a semi-hollowbody with a wide dynamic range and exceptional clarity will love this serial!
