Gibson’s Electric Spanish models - yup, that’s what ES stands for - have been a mainstay in the guitar market for their nearly 80 years of continuous production, and for good reason. The ES series served as the perfect transitional series from hollow-body to solid-body: initially by simply adding pickups to an arch-top (like the ES-150 and ES-175), and then by introducing a solid maple center block and thinning the body, creating what some consider to be the apex of blues rock guitars: the ES-335 (and its upscale counterparts). With an absolutely gorgeous, full-bodied resonance, undeniable class, and incredible versatility, Gibson’s ES series is sure to satisfy any and all of your blues rock needs.
