Gibson Memphis 2016 ES-335 Figured, Gloss Natural
Gibson Memphis Product Overview
The world's most legendary semi-acoustic guitar! From 1958 and throughout its glory years, few ES-335s were built with figured maple tops, and those that were remain highly prized. Gibson's 2016 ES-335 Figured from Gibson Memphis capture this exotic-wood elegance in a great sounding and playing semi-acoustic.
Gibson's 2016 incarnation features a tubeless Historic truss rod, PAF-style Burstbucker 1 & 2 pickups which are made in the image of the hallowed PAF humbucker with a little extra power in the bridge position, and redesigned neck shape for increased strength and enhanced playing comfort. The small-block elegance captures the desirable look of the ES-335 of the early to mid '60s. The neck has redesigned dimensions which has improved the strength and playability of the new ES-335's necks while the historic truss rod has no tube, proven to enhance the guitar's resonance and sustain. Durable titanium bridge saddles enhance sustain, presence and clarity while a locking stop bar tailpiece improves vibrational transfer to maximise sustain.
