Semi-hollowbody Heaven

Ah, the Gibson Memphis 1959 ES-335 TD. With its arched top, F-holes, and solid maple center block, the semi-hollow '335 has all the raw power of a solidbody with the refined elegance of a traditional Gibson archtop. In its second year of production, this gem from Gibson's Custom Shop is a re-creation of the famous "Dot" replete with period-correct materials, measurements, and a lustrous aged nitro finish. 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 true to the original

  • Legendary tone from BurstBucker humbuckers

A semi-hollowbody true to the original

The first ES-335's from Gibson's production line have achieved legendary status. 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 may be, it's made the original '50s ES-335's one of the most sought-after guitars among collectors, happy to pay astronomical prices for instruments in good condition. The possibility of finding a dot neck 335 from the '50s today is pretty slim. The next best thing is the 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 distorted rock tones. The neck pickup gives you classic hollowbody-style tones for everything from smooth jazz to raw 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. Little touches such as the quarter-sawn mahogany neck and the 17-degree headstock angle not only add to the amazing tone and feel, but also remain true to the ES Series as well as Gibson's history.
