Gibson Memphis 1961 ES-335 '61 Slim Neck Rosewood Fingerboard Sixties Cherry

Beginning in 1960, Gibson looked to slim down the chunky round neck profile on the revolutionary ES-335 of the 1950’s. In 1961, the ES-335 featured a thinner flatter neck that players immediately appreciated for having a comfortable feel and fast action. The 2018 ES-335 ‘61 is a historically accurate recreation of the ES-335 that combined 1950’s looks with 1960’s play-ability. The “mouse ear” body shape, rounded 60’s Slim Taper neck profile, and dark rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dot inlays, ensure that there is no mistaking this guitar’s lineage. Featuring a MTC Historic control assembly and our PAF-style MHS Humbucking pickups for classic Gibson tones. Available in Historic Burst and Sixties Cherry finishes.
