The Gibson Memphis 2015 ES-335 electric guitar in sunset burst finish is a delight through and through. From the elegant tonewood combination, to the hardy build quality, and the exquisite electronics, this ES-335 carries on the rich legacy of its predecessors in perfect form. As part of the 2015 Gibson Memphis range, this model benefits from the expertise of some of the best luthiers in the business, and when you play one, you're bound to fall in love.
Vintage ES-335 Design
The Gibson Memphis ES-335 is built to the exacting standards we've come to expect, with a sublime 3-ply tonewood body composed of maple/poplar/maple. Everything is sealed together using Franklin Titebond 50 adhesive, giving the body a solid feel whilst allowing the woods to resonate with total freedom to generate a rapturous timbre. The stylish F-holes in the maple top aren't just pretty finishing touches, they ensure the acoustic energy of the woods is projected with clarity and grace.
Single-Piece Mahogany Neck
Fitted to the body via a traditional mortise and tenon joint is a single-piece mahogany neck, which is also reinforced with Franklin Titebond 50 adhesive to ensure a sturdy playing feel. The neck is shaped to a slimtaper profile that is new to the 2015 model. Paired with the neck is a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard, which are adorned with pearloid-block position inlays. The fingerboard has been lined with cream binding, ensuring as smooth a feel as possible when making transitions between each fret.
Burst Bucker Pickups
The Gibson Memphis 2015 ES-335 is fitted with a pair of Burst Bucker pickups, which are designed to recreate the hallowed tones of Gibson's Patent Applied For (PAF) pickups. Whatever style of music you play, these pickups produce creamy, dreamy tones by translating the exquisite timbre of the tonewoods with absolute articulation.
Each pickup is equipped with individual volume and tone controls, giving you the ability to carve your output to suit the musical style you're playing. The neck pickup delivers a thick warmth that is fantastic for blues and rock rhythm and lead, whilst the bridge picked delivers a tighter response with greater clarity in the higher frequency range, perfect for searing high-gain soloing.
For those that favour 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 absolute precision, whilst the Milk Bottle Grover Rotomatic tuning machines work tirelessly to keep each and every string in solid tuning.
The Gibson Memphis 2015 ES-335 in Sunset Burst is a stunning model. Treat it well, and you're guaranteed a partner for life. Gibson has included a tan hardshell case with every model, as well as a certificate of authenticity.
