2013 Gibson Memphis ES-335 Studio in Ebony Black!
Here is a very cool and unique Gibson ES-335 Studio with one humbucker and stoptail similar to Tom Delonge's models but at a fraction of the price. It's no wonder these are becoming sought after. They have unique stylings, simplified layout and it's a Gibson ES-335. It's a nice and fairly clean guitar except for some moderate pick scratches, a few small dings, swirl marks and some finish shrinkage in a few spots as shown. The guitar is black so it shows everything. The guitar comes complete with an upgraded hardshell case, COA, paperwork as shown.
While it retains the classic design elements and full build quality of the finest ES-335s, the ES-335 Studio from Gibsons Memphis division strips away anything superfluous to focus like a laser on cranking out bone-crunching rock tone. This guitar has the same instantly familiar thinline, double-cutaway body styling from Gibson guitars seen in the hands of Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Alvin Lee and countless others, but the f-holes are eliminated to create a sleek=looking top that is also more resistant to feedback. The electronics have been pared down to a single, super-hot Dirty Fingers Plus humbucking pickup in the bridge position, along with a single volume and tone pot. What more do you need to rock? Nothingas the ES-335 Studio quickly proves, with the unparalleled playability that only a Gibson offers.
Equally hot-rodded looks are assured by your choice of Ebony Black or Midnight Blue finish, both in genuine smooth-satin nitrocellulose lacquer, paired with black hardware, tortoiseshell truss-rod cover and neck-joint cover, and a black Corian nut. Check it out now at your authorized Gibson Memphis dealer, and prepare to crank that semi like never before.
Body and Neck
The ES-335 Studio is constructed in the image of the original 335s of the late 1950s, with a semi-hollow body made from laminated maple with a bound Grade-AAA top layer and a solid maple center block, but without the traditional f-holes. The result is the perfect marriage of the traditional archtops looks and sonic depth, with the solidbodys sustain and resistance to feedback. The neck is made from solid quarter-sawn mahogany, and topped with an unbound fingerboard made from baked maple, inlaid with simple pearloid dot position markers.
Pickups and Electronics
The ES-335 Studio is loaded with a single Dirty Fingers Plus humbucker, one of Gibsons hottest pickups. For unbridled crunch and wailing lead tones, all with singing sustain, this pickup was born to rock outyet it boasts surprising clarity for mellower moments. A single volume and tone control keep it simple.
Hardware and Plastics
The ES-335 Studio carries Gibsons legendary Tune-o-matic bridge with and trapeze tailpiece, as well as high-quality Grover Rotomatic tuners, all in black chrome. Theres no pickguard, but a tortoiseshell truss-rod cover and neck-joint cover lend an alternative touch of class.
