The Gibson Memphis 2015 ES-335 Studio Electric Guitar is a lean, mean, gigging machine. Giving you the legendary tones of the semi-hollowbody ES-335, which an efficient electronics system and laid back looks, this is the model that is desperate to get onstage and strut its stuff. Once you pick up and play one of these beauties, you'll wonder how you ever got by without one in your arsenal.
Powerful ES-335 Body
The ES-335 semi-hollow body shape is legendary, having graced the studios and stages around the world for decades, wielded by some true guitar heroes. The large lower bout and chambered body generates a sumptuous energy that is infused with warmth. From deep down and dirty blues, to all out hard rock and punk, there isn't a single genre of music that has escaped the influence of the ES-335.
The ES-335 studio is built using 3-ply maple, which is glued together using Franklin Titebond 50 adhesive to ensure stability and structural integrity whilst enabling the wood to resonate freely. The tonewoods are protected by a smooth hi-gloss 90 sheen lacquer, which preserves the finish for as long as possible, whilst black binding ties the top, sides, and back together seamlessly.
Fantastic Neck and Fingerboard Partnership
Fitted to the body is a supple and supportive single-piece maple neck, connected via reinforced mortise and tenon joint - you can rest assured that no matter how hard you play, the neck can match you every step of the way. New to the 2015 model are refinements to the traditional "C" neck profile, with slimmer dimensions that make it play much faster. The double-cutaway profile opens up the neck in its entirety for you to explore. Paired with the neck is a 22-fret maple fingerboard, which is adorned with pearloid dot position inlays. Black fingerboard binding softens the edges of each fret, creating smoother transitions along the fretboard.
'57 Classic Humbuckers
The ES-335 Studio is equipped with a pair of highly versatile pickups, with a '57 Classic pickup in the neck position, and a Super '57 Classic in the bridge. With this pair at your disposal, you have a vast tonal universe to explore. The neck pickup provides lush, fat and thick warmth. The bridge pickup is much sharper, with a hotter output that will give you lead tones a searing edge.
Whatever style of music you play, it couldn't be easier to get the perfect tone. With a master volume pot, a master tone pot, and a 3-way pickup selector switch, you can make lightning fast changes with the greatest of ease.
As is the standard for Gibson, the headstock is set to a 17-degree angle, which contributes to the guitar's exceptional sustain, tuning integrity and uniform string tension. A gold Gibson decal resides between the die-cast alloy Grover Rotomatic tuning machines, which boast a 14:1 ratio synchronised spur gear system, which dutifully upholds string tuning throughout the most raucous of performances. The strings meet the body via the resilient partnership of the Tone Pro AVR-2 nickel-plated die-cast alloy bridge, and nickel-plated die-cast zinc locking stop bar tailpiece.
The Gibson Memphis 2015 ES-335 Studio Electric Guitar is supplied with a black hardshell case, as well as its very own Gibson Memphis certificate of authenticity. As soon as you receive your ES-335 Studio, you are primed and ready to hit the stage.
