The Gibson Memphis 2015 ES-335 Studio Electric Guitar in Wine Red is a gigging guitarist's dream; a stripped-back yet undeniably cool model that is produces luxurious tones with a highly efficient volume and tone control layout.
Powerful ES-335 Body
The ES-335 body shape has long been a favourite of guitar players the world over, thanks in no small part to its rich tones that are infused with a generous, character-filled warmth. The large semi-hollowbody shape generates an impressive acoustic energy that it transferred gleefully via the stylish F-holes in the body top - as well as being translated with precision by the expertly designed electronics system.
The body is built using 3-ply maple, a reverberant tonewood that produces a rapturous output with sparkle and clarity across the frequency range. Finished in a stunning wine red, the tonewoods are protected by smooth hi-gloss 90 sheen lacquer to preserve the finish for as long as possible. Stylish F-holes adorn the body top, whilst black binding ties the top, sides, and back together seamlessly.
Single-Piece Maple Neck
The single-piece maple neck meets the body via a mortise and tenon joint that is reinforced using Franklin Titebond 50 adhesive for maximum stability. New to the 2015 model are refinements to the traditional "C" neck profile, with slimmer dimensions that make it play much faster.
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. Thanks to the double-cutaway body profile, every fret is with easy reach to be explored.
'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 in Wine Red 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.
