Weights and Measurements of
several ES-335s

The weight and many of the measurements vary among every example of the Gibson ES-335 I have seen. Though the differences may seem quite small, in reality they make a large difference in how the instrument feels and sounds. Note in the table below that none of the examples measured match the original specification published by Gibson.
