Description

Details

The Gibson Memphis 2018 ES-335 Traditional Electric Guitar takes the finest features of the classic model, and adds modern appointments to improve its already highly impressive playability. Whether you're a purist who has coveted one of these beauties from afar, a working musician who needs a reliable workhorse, or simply someone who appreciates a beautiful instrument, this is a model that deserves to be played and adored.

Classic ES-335 design

The Gibson Memphis 2018 ES-335 Traditional Electric Guitar adheres to the classic semi-hollowbody design, with a 3-ply maple/poplar/maple body with a centre block and spruce bracing. The open design of the guitar enables the body to generate an impressive energy, which the centre block tempers to prevent unwanted noise or feedback from overpowering the output when amplified. The spruce bracing reinforces the top, allowing it to resonate freely whilst preventing unwanted buckling or warping over time. The result is a powerful tonal delivery with a balanced response that lends itself beautifully to any musical genre, with a lightweight feel that spares your back and shoulders during lengthy gigs.

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 Traditional 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. The hand-wired electronics are hand-wire, with orange drop capacitors on hand to guarantee smooth attenuation with absolute accuracy.

Gig-ready hardware

The body is equipped with an ABR-1 bridge with titanium saddles to increase clarity, definition and sustain. The die-cast zinc 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 Traditional 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.
