Gibson are the kings when it comes to hollowbody guitars, since launching the ES-335 back in the '50's Gibson have been refining and improving hollowbody design. The 2018 Gibson Memphis ES-339 is a stunning addition to their roster.
A 3-Ply Maple/Poplar/Maple body is finished in Antique Walnut and offers incredible sustain, a sweet, rich tone and a supreme playing position. The Quartersawn Mahogany neck features a Rosewood fingerboard, traditional round C profile and classic vintage Gibson pearloid small block inlays. Despite its smaller dimensions, this is a real players guitar, perfectly balanced and super smooth.
A pair of Memphis Historic Spec humbuckers delivers those classic tones, deep, rich and resonant they offer great clarity. These PAF style pickups are slightly underwound and feature unbalanced coils for a truly historic sound.
Gibson have perfectly captured the old school vibe so many of us crave but in a brand spanking new, super slick guitar. It's a winner.
