The Gibson ES-330 model is a true old-school classic. With its vintage looks and tones, Gibson have made this iconic instrument part of the impressive 2018 Memphis line-up. This incredible hollow-body guitar boasts full, open sounds that are perfect for jazz, blues and rock.
Despite retaining the essence of the longstanding design from decades ago, the 2018 ES-330 features updated hardware and versatile MHS P-90 pickups. We think that with these appointments, this instrument will appeal to modern players too.
The 2018 Memphis ES-335 has a full hollow body, delivering bright and open acoustic-like sounds with plenty of resonance. Despite its hollow design, the body is quite thin, offering a comfortable and ergonomic playing experience.
With maple and poplar tonewoods, this guitar provides a lot of top-end to give chords and arpeggios all the sparkle they need.
The neck has a familiar rounded “C” neck profile, feeling substantial in the hands without being too chunky or cumbersome. Rolled binding also offers a smoother feel and a sleek transition between the side of the neck and the fretboard, a great feature that you will find only on high-quality instruments like this.
The quarter-sawn mahogany neck is adorned with a rosewood fingerboard, giving you a silky smooth feel around the neck. This renowned combination of woods brings out the warmth of this guitar, merging well with the bright body woods. This means that this guitar sounds incredibly full-bodied, great for both live use and studio sessions.
