Description

Details

The Gibson Memphis 2018 ES-275 Custom Archtop Guitar in Sunset Burst gives more than a subtle nod to Gibson's classic jazz box style models. The thinline body shape with single-cutaway body profile harks back to a golden age of guitar design. However, this pure hollowbody isn't just for jazz purists. Thanks to some modern appointments and ingenious work from the Gibson Memphis team, the ES-275 Custom is perfect for rock, blues, and just about anything your heart desires.

Classic design

The ES-275 Custom is built with a completely hollow body and an arched top, which enables it to generate a powerful timbre. By employing 3-ply figured maple/poplar/maple in the construction of the body, the ES-275 resonates freely thanks to quartersawn Adirondack spruce bracing, whilst receiving support to prevent against unwanted warping over time. The stylish sunset burst finish is paired with premium appointments that include a sumptuous multi-bound tortoise pickguard, which obscures one of the two lovingly carved f-holes. The paintwork is treated to a coating of gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, which prevents any premature wear and tear from blemishing the beautiful finish.

Sturdy mahogany neck

Fitted to the body is a sturdy quartersawn mahogany neck, which is shaped to the ever so comfortable rounded "C" profile. Paired with the neck is a glorious dark rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 frets that are adorned with mother of pearl full block inlays to guide your way in style. The neck features rolled binding to make transitions along its entire length as smooth as possible. Thanks to the thinline body shape and single-cutaway profile, the upper frets are within comfortable reach to give you total freedom to explore the fingerboard in its entirety.

Memphis Historic Spec pickups

To bring the best out of the 2018 ES-275 Custom Archtop, Gibson have designed a pair of Memphis Historic Spec humbuckers to dutifully translate the rich timbre of the guitar. The hand-wired control assembly with Orange Drop capacitors and matched 550K pots afford precision attenuation of volume and tone levels. Whatever genre of music you play, the ES-275 Custom has the chameleon-like ability to segue between any and all gracefully.

Gig-ready hardware

The headstock is home to Grover “Milk Bottle” Rotomatics, which uphold tuning integrity throughout the most energetic of performances. The body is home to an ABR-1 bridge with titanium saddles to improve clarity, definition and sustain. The three-bar archtop tailpiece lends itself beautifully to the vintage-style aesthetic, whilst maintaining intonation and string tension.

The Gibson Memphis 2018 ES-275 Custom Archtop Guitar in Sunset Burst is supplied with a hardshell case, and Gibson accessory kit.
