The short-lived Gibson ES-336 was an attempt to provide a smaller body ES-335 with a different headstock design. This model was part of the Custom Collection of the late 1990s.
The big point of difference from their stable mates, the ES 335 and the later ES 339 is that the ES-336 is not made from laminated woods. The top is a book matched piece of solid maple, but most importantly, the back and sides are actually carved from one solid piece of mahogany.
This guitar plays and sounds exceptional, is certainly eye catching and not your average everyday Gibson semi-hollow.
