Breathtaking tonewood choice
The Gibson Memphis 1959 ES-335 Hand-selected Reissue is a spot-on re-creation of a vintage treasure. But a hand-selected, 1-piece flame maple top and back put a rare and gorgeous spin on this legendary instrument. A traditional mahogany neck delivers a centered tone with plenty of warmth. And the rosewood fretboard brings its familiar smooth feel and rich harmonic tones. If you’ve always wanted the best of vintage designs with once-in-a-lifetime maple construction, the 1959 ES-335 Hand-selected Reissue is your guitar.
The first ES-335s that rolled off the Gibson production line have achieved legendary status. Because of the semi-hollowbody design, the two humbucking pickups, and pearloid dot inlays, collectors are happy to pay astronomical prices for vintage examples in good condition. This semi-hollowbody has the same 3-ply maple top and back with quartersawn Adirondack spruce bracing, a vintage-spec mahogany neck topped with a smooth-playing rosewood fretboard, and the same historic truss rod. Grab a Gibson Memphis 1959 ES-335 Hand-selected Reissue, and get that vintage experience for a lot less.
Tonal excellence is yours when you plug the Gibson Memphis 1959 ES-335 Hand-selected Reissue into your favorite tube amplifier. It’s loaded with a pair of Memphis Historic Spec (MHS) alnico pickups, each with its own volume and tone controls, handing you the ability to dial in chiming country tones as easily as savagely distorted rock tones. The Alnico III neck pickup delivers classic hollowbody-style tones for everything from smooth jazz to dirty blues. Flip to the Alnico II bridge pickup, and you’ll command sounds covering everything from bright and clean to raw and mean.A semi-hollowbody that is true to the originalLegendary tone from Memphis Historic Spec humbuckersGibson Memphis 1959 ES-335 Hand-selected Reissue Features:
