Stunning block inlay 335 in super natural finish, made in the now closed Gibson Memphis factory. Memphis-made guitars are widely considered to be superior to output of the current Nashville factory. Weight is 3800g.
The Gibson ES-335 Figured is the perfect blend of form and function. Equipped with a thermally engineered chambered maple centerblock, and thermally engineered quarter-sawn Adirondack spruce bracing, players will be impressed by the lightweight feel and expanded range of tonal capabilities.
Dressed in high-end appointments like our hand-wired Memphis Tone Circuit Premiere (MTC Premiere) control assembly, the all new Memphis Historic Spec II (MHS II) humbucking pickups, and an ABR-1 bridge with titanium saddles, this just might be the best one yet.
