Description

Details

The Gibson Memphis Limited Edition ES-335 Electric Guitar with Gold Top incorporates the finest features that a semi-hollowbody has to offer with a resplendent finish. The glorious openness of the timbre produced by the body design springs forth via sophisticated “F-hole” inlays, a tradition continued since the model’s introduction back in 1958. Along with traditional appointments, modern hardware has been applied to create a harmonious partnership of time tested craftsmanship meeting cutting edge technology.

Classic ES-335 body

The ES-335 has been a favourite amongst guitarists for decades due to its outstanding tonal versatility that is infused with warmth and vibrant acoustic energy. The semi-hollowbody design allows the 3-ply maple/poplar/maple tonewood to resonate and generate a powerful timbre, which is then tempered by a solid centreblock that allows the ES-335 to growl and produce an enviable sustain, without becoming overwhelmed by feedback.

Spruce bracing has been employed to reinforce the body top, allowing the wood to resonate freely and project a confident energy, whilst limiting unwanted buckling and warping over time. As stated, the top is finished in a stunning gold top, which is protected by high gloss nitrocellulose lacquer.

Solid mahogany neck

Securely fitted to the body is a single-piece mahogany neck via the traditional Mortise and Tenon joint, and fortified thanks to the Franklin Titebond 50 adhesive. Gibson have redesigned the dimensions of the neck of the ES-335 for an improved, sturdier playing feel. The neck features a rounded “C” profile and a historic tubeless truss rod, which is proven to improve overall sustain and resonance for a fuller, better sound output.

Married to the neck is a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard, decorated with small pearloid block inlays to guide you with confidence as you make your way up and down the frets. Rolled binding guarantees the smoothest possible transitions between frets. Thanks to Gibson's tried and tested 17-degree headstock angle, string tension remains consistent throughout each and every performance. The 12-inch fingerboard radius is perfect for executing smooth and seamless string bends, perfect for laying down smooth licks.

Memphis Burstbuckers

Gibson wanted to get back the authentic PAF (Patent Applied For) tones of yesteryear, which is what drove them to design their Burstbucker pickups. The pickups are designed to emulate the smooth, rich, creamy tones of PAFs, as well as the historically mismatched position pairing. In the neck position is the Burstbucker 1, which is slightly underwound to yield a subtle output. In the bridge position is a Burstbucker 2 pickup, which is slightly overwound to offer a hotter output with plenty of snarl - perfect for executing wailing leads and chunky riffs. Each pickup is equipped with individual volume and tone controls, giving you total control over your tone.

Gig-ready hardware

Gibson have fitted the ES-335 with a durable ABR-1 bridge with titanium saddles and paired with a locking stop bar tailpiece, which create a lasting foundation to optimise intonation and sustain. Milk Bottle Grover Rotomatic tuners with die cast alloy keys are fitted to the headstock to uphold tuning integrity. With an 18:01 tuning ratio you can be sure that each string will retain the right pitch throughout the most rigorous of performances.

The Gibson Memphis Limited Edition ES-335 Electric Guitar with Gold Top is supplied with a luxurious hardshell case, as well as a Gibson Memphis Certificate of Authenticity that offers peace of mind in knowing that your new pride and joy is 100% Gibson.
