The Gibson Memphis 1963 ES-335TDC Left-Handed Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar in Sixties Cherry finish is an exceptional instrument that borrows heavily from its predecessors, whilst delivering the resilience and reliability of a modern day build. From the sophisticated finish to the intricately detailed electronics, from the harmonious marriage of materials and design, this is a guitar to be treasured for generations to come.

Classic ES-335 Body

The classic ES-335 semi-hollow body profile with slim taper cutaways is no stranger to Gibson enthusiasts, but this doesn't detract from its exquisite beauty. This left-handed model has been treated with the same due care and attention as every other from the experts in the Gibson Memphis stable. The warmth generated by the semi-hollowbody profile is generated deftly by the 3-ply maple/poplar/maple tonewood combination, creating an sublime timbre that is at once articulate whilst having a thick and soulful character. The resilient ES-335TDC feel is secured thanks to Franklin Titebond adhesive, which allows the wood to resonate freely whilst upholding stability throughout the body.

The Sixties Cherry model harks back to the classic model, recreating its vibrant finish that is protected and preserved by smooth hi-gloss 90sheen lacquer that is completed in vintage original spec (V.O.S.) - allowing the natural grain of the maple to shine through in style.

Single-Piece Mahogany Neck

Married to the body via a classic mortise and tenon joint - with additional support from Franklin Titebond 50 adhesive - is a sublime single-piece mahogany neck that is shaped to the historic 1963 profile. Paired with the neck is a 22-fret dark rosewood fingerboard, which is adorned with period-correct celluloid block position inlays. Rolled neck binding rounds off the edges of each fret, guaranteeing smoother transitions along the fretboard, enriching the playing experience. This left-handed model sits perfectly in the hand, and once you start playing, you'll never want to put it down again.

Exquisite Gibson Memphis Appointments

The Gibson ES-335TDC just wouldn't be the same without the customary appointments that allow it to play as sublimely as it does. Little details make all the difference. The headstock is set to the standard 17-degree angle that Gibson employ across several ranges of their models, which contributes to the guitar's exceptional sustain, tuning integrity and uniform string tension. Maintaining that attention to detail are the awesomely appointed Kluson double-ring tuning machines that feature a stamped steel body with plastic tulip buttons, which boast a substantial 15:1 gear ratio to secure tuning integrity with absolute precision. Of course, we can't forget the V.O.S. vintage truss rod cover, shaped to the distinctively "Bell" design, and the mother-of-pearl Crown inlay and "Gibson" logo.

Fitted to the body is the resilient partnership of a No-Wire ABR V.O.S. nickel-plated, die-cast alloy bridge, and V.O.S. nickel-plated aluminium lightweight stop bar tailpiece. The bridge and tailpiece work together to secure strings and create a harmonious connection with the body, allowing the sustain and string resonance to ring out truly for as long as possible. Whether you're picking softly, or slamming through chords at breakneck speed, the ES-335TDC is built to match your performance every step of the way.

Memphis Historic Spec Pickups

The team at Gibson Memphis has only gone to great lengths to recreate the revered tonal characteristics of Patent Applied For (PAF) pickups with their Memphis Historic Spec (MHS) pickups. The neck pickup is powered by an Alnico III magnet, offering a fat and chunky tonal output that is flooded with the warmth produced by the body. The bridge pickup is powered by an Alnico II magnet, offering a little sizzle that breaks up when given a push of overdrive. Enamel wiring is scatter wound to ensure each model develops its own unique character over time, which along with the tonewoods, will only get better with age.

If you're a lefty who is searching for their spiritual home in the guitar, then the Gibson Memphis 1963 ES-335TDC Left-Handed Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar in Sixties Cherry is the answer to your prayers. Each model comes with a Gibson Memphis period correct black and yellow hardshell case, and certificate of authenticity.
