br /> The company has suggested that the $5,649 (£4,000) instrument, which is available in Antique Custom and Antique Vintage Sunburst, is one of the most faithful reissues ever, recreating the model's famous sound through the use of 1957 Classic humbucking pickups.

"Gibson Custom's limited production 1959 ES-335 Dot Reissue captures this desirable classic in greater detail than any reissue-style guitar previously produced," the official website said.

The ES-335 is considered to be one of the great pioneering guitars and Gibson claims that original copies are so highly sought after that it is surpassed only by rare Explorer and Flying V models and the 1958-60 Les Paul Standard.

Among the famous artists to have played the ES-335 over the years is blues legend BB King, the third greatest guitarist of all time, according to Rolling Stone magazine.
