Description

Details

The ES-275 hails from a long line of Gibson hollowbody archtop guitars, featuring a cutaway influenced by the L-5 for access to the upper registers. The ES-275 has been expertly crafted to bring together a mélange of historically accurate and modern appointments that work to give you a unique tone and enjoyable playing feel.

BODY

The ES-275 has a fully hollow body with an arched top constructed from 3-ply maple / poplar / maple. The body has a 2 inch depth making it slightly more compact than the L-5 which it has been based on. The back and sides are also built from 3-ply maple / poplar / maple, so when you play every note and chord can resonate freely through the hollow airspace and up through the F-style cutouts for an incredible voice.

NECK

A single-piece of mahogany makes up the smooth neck, and it is shaped to the comfortable rounded "C" profile. Firmly fitted to the body via a traditional Mortise and Tenon joint, the neck has a reliable, durable feel in your hand. Topping the neck is a slick rosewood fingerboard, adorned with aged-cellulose split parallelogram inlays. The fingerboard edges are rolled to make fret transitions feel even smoother. The ES-275 features an Historic truss rod which boosts sustain and resonance, partnering the mahogany and rosewood in the neck beautifully.

HUMBUCKER PICKUPS

Gibson have employed a pair of MHS Humbucker pickups in both the neck and bridge positions of the ES-275. Gibson state that the MHS Humbuckers are their best PAF (Patent Applied For) reproductions to date, offering a wide tonal range with unique characteristics to this 2016 ES-275 model. The MHS Humbucker rhythm pickup is powered by an Alnico III magnet, while the lead humbucker is powered by an Alnico II magnet. These slightly under wound pickups have been so well-crafted to produce an impressive, ethereal tone.

Four controls feature for Rhythm and Lead Volume and Tone, plus a 3-way toggle pickup switch to help shape your sound.

HARDWARE AND FINISH

The headstock is equipped with Kluson single ring tulip button tuning keys, as well as the unmistakable Gibson logo and crown.

A floating ABR-1 Tune-o-matic Bridge with titanium saddles is fitted to the lower bout of the body, enhancing clarity and sustain.

A protective full-gloss sheen lacquer finish keeps the body looking opulent over time, while a black scratchplate also reinforces the body top. Gibson acknowledge how important it is to keep your guitar protected against the elements, thus a hardshell tan case is included along with a Gibson Memphis Certificate of Authenticity.
