Delivering the vintage power that has made this model a legend, the Gibson Memphis 2015 ES-335 electric guitar in classic cherry packs in all of the dedication and passion from the Gibson team that has made these guitars so loved today. Some superb additions have been made to this rendition of the ES-335 but it still has the heartbeat of a classic, providing monster sound whilst being a dream to play.
Beautiful ES-335 Hollowbody Design
The Gibson Memphis 2015 ES-335 chambered semi-hollowbody design is built using a 3-ply maple/poplar/maple combination. The woods are held together using Franklin Titebond 50 adhesive to complete a seamless fit that is strong, resilient, and allows the tonewood to resonate to their fullest capability. The supple nature of the woods enables the ES-335 to generate incredible power, which is tempered and controlled by the exquisite internal structure. Stylish F-holes adorn the top, providing an outlet for the acoustically brilliant timbre to flow through. The rich cherry finish is protected by a subtle coating of hi-gloss 90 sheen lacquer, preserving it for as long as possible.
Sumptuous Single-Piece Mahogany Neck
The Gibson Memphis 2015 ES-335 employs a single piece mahogany neck which utilises Gibson's well known combination of a mortise and tenon joint, and Franklin Titebond 50 adhesive. Thanks to this, the mahogany can resonate freely through the body. A SlimTaper profile means that your playing experience will be fast, smooth and very comfortable, even when playing long sets in hot venues. The neck also houses a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22-frets that are adorned with small pearloid block position inlays that guide your way in modest style.
Vibrant Burst Bucker Pickups
Burst Buckers are the culprits here when it comes to firepower. The Gibson ES-335 has employed these to give you a closeness in tonality to Gibson's hallowed PAF humbuckers. Every nuance of character from the ES-335's body is accurately translated through these superb pickups.
You are not without an element of customisation with the ES-335 thanks to the independent tone and volume controls for each pickup. The 3-way pickup selector switch allows you to choose either pickup individually, or both at the same time to create your own special combo. The onboard Memphis tone circuit also delivers a full sonic range with no roll-off at low or high volume levels.
Acclaimed Hardware Appointments
The Gibson Memphis 2015 ES-335 sports a new TonePros AVR-II bridge that holds all the character of the original ABR-1 tune-o-matic bridge, but adds modern build techniques and improvements that allows it to work wonderfully with the Milk Bottle Grover Rotomatic tuning machines that work tirelessly to keep each and every string held securely so that you get incredible sustain.
The Gibson Memphis 2015 ES-335 electric guitar in classic cherry has managed to have that golden combination of acclaimed classic character with a garnish of modern build technique and technology. Because this is a guitar that will be with you for years, Gibson have also included a hardcase and certificate of authenticity too. Truly a thing of beauty.
