Vintage appointments give you killer playability and vibe

Gibson Memphis built the 1964 ES-345 VOS semi-hollowbody electric guitar to vintage specs for an instrument that plays just like the original. The ES-345 VOS's neck and body are built using hot hide glue, which many argue sounds better than synthetic glue. Gibson Memphis also uses a vintage-accurate truss rod, truss rod washer, and anchor in the guitar's neck. Every piece of wood used in the ES-345 is hand selected by its looks and weight. Just like the original, these guitars are lightweight wonders to play.

Legendary tone from alnico humbuckers

Tonal excellence is yours when you plug the Gibson Memphis 1964 ES-345 VOS into your favorite tube amplifier. Loaded with a pair of MHS alnico pickups, each with its own volume and tone controls, you'll be able to dial in chiming country tones as easily as savagely distorted rock tones. The Alnico III neck pickup gives you classic hollowbody-style tones for everything from smooth jazz to dirty blues. Flip to the Alnico II bridge pickup, and you'll command sounds covering everything from bright and clean to raw and mean. Sweetwater guitarists have found that these alnico pickups deliver a wide sonic range and articulate response.

Gibson Memphis offers premium handcrafted hollowbodies

Handbuilt at the Gibson Memphis Custom Shop, these guitars feature premium craftsmanship and carefully selected tonewoods that give you amazing playability and tone. Countless jazz, rock, and blues players have used Gibson hollowbodies for decades. Take it from Sweetwater - the Gibson Memphis 1964 ES-345 VOS will give you years of great performance!
