Gibson Memphis Limited ES-335 Figured, Purple Edge Burst
This super-limited custom spec, custom colour 335! So the body is the usual Maple/Poplar/Maple 3-ply laminate pressed on the very same machines used back in Kalamazoo in the 50's with beautiful AAA grade figuring for the top ply. The custom Purple Edge Burst gloss nitrocellulose finish is something to behold, the inside of the body is un-stained and the internal braces are Spruce.
The Mahogany neck has a comfy rounded 'C' profile measuring 0.85" at the first fret thickening out to 0.95" at the 12th, the binding is rolled for comfort and the truss rod is the Historic spec tubeless type. The fingerboard is dark Rosewood and has small Pearloid block inlays, the nut is bone and there are a set of Milk Bottle Grover Rotomatics keeping everything in tune.
Gibson's Memphis Custom Shop have gone all-out with the electronics on the 335! The bridge pickup is a four-conductor Super '57 which pairs perfectly with the four-conductor '57 Classic. There are push/pull volume pots which cut the coils for each pickup and then a push/pull pot on the neck tone control selects which coil remains on! The Memphis Tone Circuit is also included which helps retain the top-end response when adjusting the volume controls.
Other hardware includes a no-wire ABR-1 bridge with Titanium saddles, a locking tailpiece and black top-hat knobs with silver inserts. The fitted case is brown with charcoal plush interior. Don't miss out on this one, we won't be getting any more!
