Here are some key features and details about the Gibson ES-335:

Semi-Hollow Body Design: The ES-335 has a semi-hollow body construction, combining a solid centre block with hollow wings on either side. This design helps to reduce feedback at high volumes while maintaining some of the tonal characteristics of a hollow-body guitar.

Construction: The body is typically made from a laminate maple top, back, and sides. The centre block is also made of maple. The neck is often made from mahogany.

Double Cutaway Design: The ES-335 features a double cutaway design, allowing easy access to the upper frets.

F-Holes: Like many semi-hollow and hollow body guitars, the ES-335 has f-shaped sound holes (F-holes) on the top, contributing to its distinctive appearance and providing a resonance chamber.

Scale Length and Neck: The standard scale length is 24.75 inches, typical for Gibson guitars. The neck profile can vary, but it often features a comfortable, medium-to-thin C-shaped profile.

Pickups: The ES-335 traditionally comes with dual humbucking pickups, contributing to its warm and rich tone. Over the years, Gibson has used various pickups in the ES-335, including the classic PAF (Patent Applied For) humbuckers.

Hardware: Hardware components, including the bridge, tailpiece, and tuners, can vary between models and years. Some ES-335s have a stopbar tailpiece and tune-o-matic bridge, while others may have a Bigsby vibrato tailpiece.

Finish Options: The ES-335 is available in various finish options, including sunburst, cherry, natural, and others. The finish can affect the guitar's appearance and sometimes its tonal characteristics.
