The Gibson Memphis 2015 ES-335 electric guitar in Figured Sunset Burst, builds on the acclaimed beauty of the original 335 with cutting edge build technique, and of course, that stunning figured top. Giving you all that made the original so magical - full bodied sound and a playing experience to die for -, the 2015 rendition pushes boundaries but retains the original's soul.
The Gibson ES-335 benefits from the warmth that can only be achieved by a hollowbody. The chambered body profile allows the 3-ply partnership of maple/poplar/maple to generate immense depth, which is generously delivered through F-holes in the figured top and the carefully appointed pickups. The structure of the body is held in place firmly by Franklin Titebond 50 adhesive, which allows the woods to resonate fully whilst maintaining a solid feel.
The figured maple top elevates the already stunning aesthetic of this incredible model. The grain shines through the mesmerising sunset burst paintjob, creating an eye-catching finish to die for. Whether you're an amateur or a jobbing professional, you are sure to turn heads with this stunner in your hands.
Fitted to the body is a carefully crafted single-piece mahogany neck, taking advantage of Gibson's established technique that combines a mortise and tenon joint, and Franklin Titebond 50 adhesive. Thanks to this tried and tested partnership, the mahogany is given total freedom to resonate and transfer that energy through to the body.
The neck is shaped to a slim taper profile to give it a delightfully slender feel in the hand. Paired to the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22-frets that are adorned with small pearloid block position inlays that guide your way with vintage class.
Burst Bucker Pickups
The Gibson Memphis 2015 ES-335 is fitted with Burst Bucker humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions. Noted for their closeness in character to Gibson's hallowed PAF humbuckers, the Burst Buckers offer a huge arsenal of tones for you to take advantage of. The richly textured character of the tonewood/body shape partnership is translated beautifully through the pickups.
Thanks to the individual volume and tone controls, you can carefully shape and craft your output signal to your heart's desire. The 3-way pickup selector switch allows you to choose either pickup individually, or both at the same time to create your own special blend.
For fans of the ABR-1 Tune-o-matic bridge, you'll find the new TonePros AVR-II bridge retains the same excellent functionality and resilient performance. Intonation, string tension and tuning are maintained with the utmost precision, whilst the chrome-buttoned, Milk Bottle Grover Rotomatic tuning machines work tirelessly to keep each and every string held securely.
The Gibson Memphis 2015 ES-335 electric guitar in Figured Sunset Burst is something to behold. Not just as a guitar but as a piece of musical engineering. Unrelenting tone combined with staggering beauty means that this will be a guitar to treasure for a lifetime. In order to preserve this beauty for as long as possible, Gibson has included a tan hardshell case with each model, and your very own certificate of authenticity.
