Gibson ES-135 2003 Guitar Review :: Electric Guitars Reviews

exemplifies the continuing evolution of the semi-hollow body

Gibson’s designs have become true classics. The Gibson les Paul, SG, ES-175, ES-335, Flying V, Explorer, Firebird, and Blueshawks are a testament to Gibson’s wide appeal, spanning more than four decades of music styles. Gibson’s close relationship with musicians is manifest in endorsement models from B.B King, Chet Atkins, Howard Roberts, Herb Ellis, Ace Frehley, Joe Perry, Angus Young, Gary Moore and Nikki Sixx. Today’s Gibson electric guitars represent the history as well as the future of the electric guitar.

The ES-135 2003 exemplifies the continuing evolution of one of Gibson’s most popular thinline, semi-hollow electric guitars. The closed body (no f-holes), ’57 Classic humbuckers and the satin finish bring this musical instrument to a new level of style, perfomance and affordability.
