Gibson ES 235 Memphis 2019 Gloss Ebony 

Gibson guitars are synonymous with quality. Their Gibson ES-235, Ebony (2019) continues this tradition of guitar-making excellence. Warm, acoustic tones can be delivered by a classic semi-hollowbody, but this is only the start when it comes to the ES-235's never-ending tonal capabilities. 

Crystal clear rock, jazz, country and blues tones can all be achieved thanks to Burstbucker Pro pickups and Gibson's innovative Memphis Tone Circuit, meaning the guitar is as wide-reaching as it is stylish. A unique and eye-catching body of maple and poplar wood is Gibson's thinnest release to date, modernising more chunky models of the past. 

Including a Gibson soft-shell case, it's all of the above and much more that ensures the truly stunning ES-235 is destined to become an instant classic.

Timeless Gibson quality for wide range of styles

Gibson have instilled their rich heritage into the ES-235, boasting unparalleled sound quality and range. This model has prompted comparisons to a cross between the bluesy ES-125 and the legendary Les Paul. The former was an early favourite of rhythm and blues genius BB King, while the Les Paul has long been a go-to of the world's most successful and talented guitarists, finding a home in the music of everyone from Led Zeppelin's rock god Jimmy Page, to glam icon Marc Bolan of T-Rex, and pretty much everywhere in between. It's no wonder, then, that the ES-235 is tipped for great things considering the gigantic breadth of sounds it can produce.

Superb sharpness of sound

Strength of sound quality is integral. Twin Burstbucker Pro pickups afford a crispness and clarity to rival any guitar on the market. A neck pickup designed for rhythm playing provides a softer sound ideal for home playing, while a Burstbucker Pro Lead pickup on the bridge can deliver a much more aggressive, dynamic sound, perfect for live performance. Lead guitarists can rest easy with Burstbucker Pro pickups. Every funky lick, every catchy riff, and every show-stopping guitar solo is certain to burst through the mix. They'll sound clear, sharp and brilliantly intense as they do.

Never sacrifice tone with MTC control

Many guitars can lose sound quality when the volume is turned down. Dynamism can be lost and, as a result, the overall audio becomes a little darker. Thanks to the innovative Memphis Tone Circuit, wired with 500K potentiometers and ceramic capacitators, this is not an issue. Every step has been taken to preserve sound quality, ensuring tonal depth and clarity remains, no matter the volume.

Comfortable playing action

Near the top of the list for every guitarist is ease of playability. No musician wants an instrument they find difficult to play. Fortunately, this will never be a problem with the ES-235, allowing for true creative freedom. The rounded "C" shaped maple neck is designed with the guitarist's comfort in mind, meaning you'll never have to sacrifice a note due to discomfort. A state of the art rosewood fingerboard further increases playability, its supreme smoothness allowing the guitarist to glide from note to note, and chord to chord with ease and pinpoint precision.

Semi-hollowbody perfect for acoustic rhythm playing

Semi-hollowbody guitars provide an incomparable freedom and fluidity of sound, and the ES-235 serves as a fantastic example of this. A maple block running through the centre of the guitar has the 2 Burstbucker Pro pickups attached to it. These are the source of the guitar's immense, powerful electric sound. However, the ES-235 guitar is extremely flexible. Gentler acoustic playing can be achieved thanks to the guitar's semi-hollowbody either side of the central block. Classic "F"-shaped sound holes create an authentic electro-acoustic sound, ideal for rhythmic playing.

Modern meets traditional in unique appearance

Guitars can be art. The ES-235 is testament to that. A strikingly narrow body adds a modernised, streamlined edge to the classic Gibson semi-hollowbody appearance. A glossed maple wood body in ebony is finished with a classy cream binding. This guitar, even down to its appearance, combines a familiar nod to the past with an exciting glimpse into the future of guitarmaking.
