The 2018 ES-335 Figured Electric Guitar in Aquamarine is a statement piece from the team at Gibson Memphis, showcasing their talents in a masterful instrument. From the meticulously crafted tonewoods to the heavenly Aquamarine finish, this model exudes high quality down to the tiniest detail. It is fair to say that the Gibson Memphis team have outdone themselves with this one.

Classic ES-335 design

The body is carved to the instantly recognisable ES Series shape, with elegant curves and sweeping edges that make it such a joy to behold. The 3-ply figured maple/poplar/maple tonewood construction lends itself beautifully to the semi-hollowbody shape, by generating a wide dynamic range that is infused with warmth and a balanced frequency range. Present and correct is the maple centre block that prevents the energetic character of the ES-335 from running away with itself, so that what remains is an output that sounds as sweet at low or high volume levels. The lightweight feel is matched by the solid construction of the body, which guarantees resilience throughout each and every performance.

However, it is the finish that sets the 2018 ES-335 Figured model apart. The Aquamarine paintwork complements the figured maple top in immaculate fashion, whilst single-ply cream binding adds to the visual aesthetic fittingly.

Strong and supportive neck

Fitted to the body is a quartersawn mahogany neck, which establishes a sturdy feel in the hand for total reassurance as you play. The neck is shaped to the rounded "C" profile for a substantial yet manageable feel in the hand. The rolled binding enables seamless transitions along the neck for a speedy playing experience. The neck is paired with a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, which is adorned with pearloid small block position inlays to guide your way in style.

Memphis Historic Spec pickups

The 2018 ES-335 Figured is equipped with a pair of Memphis Historic Spec humbuckers, which are designed with meticulous attention to detail in order to translate the ES-335's balanced timbre with the utmost fidelity. From rich and resounding mid to low-end energy through a punchy midrange to a searing high-end output, these pickups deliver a highly versatile tonal palette.

As noted above, the Gibson Memphis team have spared nothing in securing a high-end product. The hand-wired MTC Premiere control assembly with Orange Drop capacitors and 550K matched pots offer peerless volume and tone adjustment, giving you total mastery over your pickup and tone control.

Gig-ready hardware

The body is equipped with an ABR-1 bridge with titanium saddles to increase clarity, definition and sustain. The aluminium tailpiece with locking studs reinforces the bridge's consistency, whilst the Grover "Milk Bottle" Rotomatic tuners uphold tuning integrity dutifully throughout the most energetic of performances.

Each Gibson Memphis 2018 ES-335 Figured Electric Guitar is supplied with a hardcase to protect your model at home and on the go, as well as an accessory kit to help keep it in pristine condition.

Posted on 14/05/2018 by I've seen this in the shop and it is the most beautiful 335 I've ever seen. The finish is gorgeous although I would swap out the gold tone volume pots for Black & Silver ones (hence the 4 Stars) I've also tried a 2018 Memphis 335 and they sound great and play beautifully.

Not cheap but very very nice.
