This posting is for a Gibson Memphis ES-335 Traditional 2018 guitar, in Antique Faded Cherry, Excellent Condition. This guitar was made in Gibson’s Memphis Tennessee Factory just a few months before Gibson closed the factory, therefore it is a very desirable guitar to own…..representing the end of an era. (Gibson ES-335 production was moved to Gibson’s Guitar Factory in Nashville, TN in 2019). The guitar is in Excellent Condition…it was purchased as a collectible and has been maintained as such. Very infrequent use, and has been on display in my temperature/climate- controlled studio. It is a Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar with Maple Top, Maple/Poplar Body, Mahogany Neck, Rosewood “block” inlay Fingerboard, and 2 Humbucking Pickups.

A semi-hollowbody that is true to the original.

Odds of even finding a "block" 'inlay ES-335 from the 1960s today are almost zero. The next best thing is to get your hands on this Gibson Memphis ES-335 Traditional. It has the looks, the sound, and the star power of the real deal.
