It's a rare and wonderful thing to see Gibson bring out a new body design, and that's precisely what you get with the 2016 ES-275 Figured. This hollowbody archtop draws influence from the curves and cutaway of the Gibson L-5 and takes it up a notch by giving the ES-275 Figured a more compact-sized body. Constructed using the finest tonewoods, this new ES-275 looks, sounds and feels awesome.


Gibson have opted for the traditional maple tonewood in the build of the ES-275, however the body top, back and sides are all constructed from premium AAA grade figured maple. The pairing of the smaller body dimensions and this stunning tonewood contributes to a wonderful hollowbody tone with real clarity. The F-style cutouts in the body enable the soundwaves to travel up through the body and out for a robust, resonant voice.


The Gibson Memphis luthiers looked to the Les Paul model when it came to designing the neck for the ES-275 Figured. By employing the Les Paul style neck set into the body, paired with the rolled edges and body cutaway, you are provided full access to the upper registers, allowing for a comfortable playing feel. Topping the neck is a smooth 22-fret richlite fingerboard with a 12 inch radius which is decorated with Mother of Pearl block inlays.


Gibson Memphis have employed a pair of MHS Humbucker pickups in the neck and bridge positions of the ES-275 Figured guitar. Gibson describe the MHS Humbuckers as their best PAF (Patent Applied For) reproductions to date, offering a wide tonal range with unique characteristics to this 2016 ES-275 Figured model. These slightly under wound humbucking pickups have been so well-crafted to produce an impressive, ethereal hollowbody tone.

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


Kluson single ring tulip button tuning keys are fitted to the headstock for precise tuning along with the iconic Gibson logo on the front.

The bridge is a reliable ABR-1 Tune-o-matic bridge with titanium saddles and a zig zag tailpiece, enhancing tone and sustain.

A protective full-gloss sheen lacquer finish keeps the body looking its best, and a tortoise pickguard protects against scratches. Gibson include a hardshell case and COA with the purchase of the ES-275 Figured model to keep it safe on the road.
