As guitarist and founding member of the Black Crowes, Rich Robinson has earned nearly as solid a reputation for his love of fine guitars as he has for his juicy, swaggering riffs. The new Rich Robinson ES-335 nails exactly what Rich loves in a vintage early ’60s ES-335: killer authentic faded-Cherry looks, creamy yet clear PAF tones, and the added versatility of a genuine Bigsby™ vibrato with traditional “Custom Made” plate to cover the stopbar stud holes.

This “small block” incarnation of the fabled ES-335 is dear to the hearts of many great players, and you’ll find its full mojo embodied in the Rich Robinson ES-335. Built to the original ES-335 semi-hollow design with a body made from maple laminates and a solid center block to cut feedback and enhance sustain, this is one of the most adaptable electrics on the planet, excelling at anything from jazz, to pop, to country, to flat-out Black Crowes-certified rock’n’roll. Rich’s preferred neck profile makes it superbly comfortable to play, and there’s a little extra real estate at the 1.711”-wide nut to give you plenty of room to roam. Load in a BurstBucker 1 at the neck and a slightly hotter BurstBucker 2 at the bridge, dress it all in a luscious aged-Cherry finish given Gibson’s exclusive VOS process, with gently aged and period-correct nickel hardware, and pack it in a brown hardshell case with plush charcoal lining and Certificate of Authenticity, this is a classic ES-335 you’ll want to get your hands on right away.
