Details of three Gibson thinline guitars, based on the 335 Electric Spanish guitar, introduced in 1958. A new model, the ES335 Dot has many of the features of the early 335s (mahogany neck, stop tailpiece, SP1 peghead, reissued 'patent applied for' humbuckers, dot inlays - hence the model name), and is shown being demonstrated by Mr. Dave Roberts, at the London Guitar Fair on the front cover.

The then-current version of the ES335TD had evolved significantly since it's inception: it had enlarged f-holes, a laminate maple neck, block inlays, a bail-type tailpiece, newer Super humbucking pickups with coil tap switch and a reduced headstock angle.

Whilst the 335 dot was a look back to Gibson tradition, the ES335 Pro applied some up-to-date thinking to the 335 - it had the same basic body as the current 335, with large f-holes, and the same laminate maple neck, but it added a stop tailpiece, new(ish) Dirty Finger exposed coil pickups, and to completely update the look, black speed knobs.

These models were listed at the following prices in the UK (1981) ES-335 Dot £729; ES-335 TD £829; and ES-335 Pro £850.
