GIBSON made the ES-335 S STANDARD (ES-335 SOLID BODY) between 1980 and 1981. It was an ES-335 shaped solid maple bodied electric with three piece maple neck and unbound rosewood fingerboard. Pickups were zebra coil Gibson Super Humbuckers, controls were two volume and two tone controls with a three way selector switch. The 335-S Standard was part of the Firebrand Series - so they typically have "Firebrand 335-S Standard" on the truss rod cover.

This model was reissued in 2011 (minus one of the tone controls) as the Gibson 335-S.

Correction to spec

The Firebrands were either Mahogany for the "Delux" or "WALNUT" for the Standard, NOT maple.   I have both the Delux which is in mahogany and the Standard which is in walnut.

Maple es 335 s

No  they (es 335 s  standards )   are maple bodies ~! Sound completely  different and brighter ..  I have had mine since early 90's  .. the es 335  deluxe' s    The Pauls   and The S Gs  were all mahogany .. Just look at the wood color .. Not the same ~! I also have a 1979  Les Paul  "The Paul" custom now .. All mahogany as well ..
