Gibson Luther Dickinson ES-335

Gibson Luther Dickinson ES-335


Steeped in the authentic blues of North Mississippi Hill Country originals like R.L. Burnside, Junior Kimbrough and Otha Turner, Luther Dickinson and his North Mississippi Allstars made a major impact on the music world when they hit the scene in the late 1990s. His searing tone and dynamic playing style have become instantly recognizable, and Dickinson has lent his formidable chops to class acts like Beck, the Replacements and Mojo Nixon.

The Luther Dickinson ES-335 packs Dickinson's own heady blend of innovation and tradition into a fresh—yet timeless—guitar whose surprising versatility fits multiple genres of music like a glove.

The Luther Dickinson ES-335 is built in the image of the renowned late-'50s ES-335, with a semi-hollow body for depth and resonance and a solid maple center block to aid sustain and combat feedback. Rather than the ES-335's humbucking pickups, however, it carries a pair of Dickinson's beloved P-90 single-coil pickups with "dog-ear" covers, for a distinctively biting, punchy tone. "I fell in love with the ES-330," says Dickinson, "so what I wanted to do was combine the two. If we can get the P-90 sound and response of a 330 on a 335 semi-hollow that can handle the rock and roll environment—now we're really getting somewhere. And then the cherry on the top… we put the Bigsby on there."

To top it all off, Luther wanted the guitar's finish to match the finish on a vintage ES-175 owned by his father, Memphis musician and producer Jim Dickinson, so Gibson Memphis pulled out all the stops. The deep, rich, vintage-toned "Jim Dickinson Burst" drips with tradition, and looks and feels gently aged right out of the case, thanks to Gibson's proprietary VOS process.
