Gibson ES-335 'one of the company's most important guitars'
This is according to Gibson Lifestyle blog contributor Michael Leonard, who noted the company's legendary designer Ted McCarty has previously said it is was one of his most important creations, behind only the Les Paul solidbody.
"I came up with the idea of putting a solid block of maple in an acoustic model," McCarty has explained.
"It would get some of the same tone as a regular solidbody, plus the instrument's hollow wings would vibrate and we'd get a combination of an electric solidbody and a hollowbody guitar."
Mr Leonard noted one of the famous early users of the Gibson ES-335 was Chuck Berry, whose performances on the instrument inspired Keith Richards to pick up a guitar.
A host of other musicians from a variety of genres have gone on to use the ES-335 down the years.
They include Romeo Stodhart from the Magic Numbers, solo star Ryan Adams and Blink 182's Tom DeLonge, who used a Gibson ES-335 as a member of Angels and Airwaves.
Andrew Stockdale of Wolfmother fame is another to have played the guitar.
