As perfect for jazz and fusion as it is for blues and rock, the Gibson Memphis 1959 ES-335 TD is the ultimate semi-hollowbody.

A semi-hollowbody that is true to the original

Maybe it's the semi-hollowbody design, the sound of its two humbucking pickups or just the simple elegance of the pearloid dot inlays. Whatever it is, it's made the original 1950s ES-335s among the most sought-after guitars among collectors who are often happy to pay astronomical prices for instruments in good condition. Odds of even finding a dot neck 335 from the 1950s today are almost zero. The next best thing is to get your hands on the this Gibson Memphis 1959 ES-335 TD. It has the looks, the sound and the star power of the real deal.

Legendary tone from BurstBucker humbuckers

Tonal excellence is yours when you plug the Gibson Memphis 1959 ES-335 TD into your favorite tube amplifier. Loaded with a pair of BurstBucker humbucking 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 neck pickup gives you classic hollowbody-style tones for everything from smooth jazz to dirty blues. Flip to the bridge position, and you'll command sounds covering everything from bright and clean to raw and mean.

Gibson Memphis's commitment to quality

Gibson's Custom Shop took extra care with every detail of the 1959 ES-335 TD. Every Gibson Memphis guitar receives an ultra-precise Plek Pro setup, which optimizes the fretboard and nut for incredibly accurate intonation and a "just right" feel. And little touches like the quartersawn mahogany neck and the 17-degree headstock angle not only add to the amazing tone and feel, they remain true to the ES Series as well as Gibson's history.
