Details

The Gibson Memphis 2018 Limited Edition ES-335 Figured Guitar in Antique Walnut is a masterpiece of craftsmanship. The expert luthiers at Gibson Memphis have outdone themselves with this beauty, adhering to time-tested construction processes whilst utilising the highest quality of components to guarantee a first-class guitar. The Limited-Edition ES-335 Figured Antique Walnut is truly a sight to behold.

Iconic ES-335 design

The ES-335 body shape is a timeless classic, with sweet contours and curves in all the right places. The chambered body includes a maple centre block to temper the mid-range to prevent unwanted feedback when played through an amplifier. The 3-ply figured maple/poplar/maple tonewood generates a stirring energy with a complex character that allows the guitar to easily straddle any musical genre, which contributes to cementing the ES-335 as such a highly coveted model.

The body is supported using quartersawn Adirondack spruce bracing, which allows the wood to resonate freely whilst maintaining a solid and reassuring feel. The beautiful antique walnut finish is complemented by single-ply cream binding, which ties the body together nicely.

Sturdy yet supple neck

Joined to the body is a quartersawn mahogany neck, which is shaped to the rounded "C" profile to promote a fast-playing feel. The rolled binding ensures that your hand to seamlessly transition along the entire length of the neck, whilst the rosewood fingerboard offers a sumptuous playground to explore. Pearloid small block position inlays provide a stylish navigational aid, adding to the cool vintage vibe in fitting fashion.

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 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.
