​​Gibson Memphis
'63 ES 335 TDC Block 2015
​Condition: Excellent
$3,599

Offered here is one of our favorite Gibson models, one often called their "old style" '63 ES 335 Block Reissue. This version of the '63 ES 335 was introduced in 2013 as their "50th Anniversary" model. It is (was) built much more like the original upon which it is based with a more accurate body shape, nylon saddles, constructed with natural hide glues, a lighter center block and it is given a VOS (light aging) treatment which makes it look, feel and play more like a vintage instrument. Gibson continued making this model until 2018 due to popular demand.  With the closure of Gibson's original Memphis factory and the company's financial restructuring, however, this model is now out of production. 

This particular example (serial number 52378) was completed in December, 2015. It has a medium C-shaped neck with depth measurements of .83" at the first fret increasing to .97" at the twelfth fret. It weighs just under 8 pounds. Other key specs include: a 24.75" string scale; a 1.70" nylon nut; a 12" radius fretboard made of nicely figured rosewood; Gibson's MHS humbucker pickups; and an ABR-1 bridge with stop bar tailpiece. The guitar is finished in Cherry nitrocellulose lacquer, with cream binding, aged hardware and the lightly aged VOS treatment. This guitar looks and feels like the real deal. It plays superbly too, with a nice medium/low setup with no buzzing. It sounds great too; check out the provided sound sample - this guitar gives you the nice fat, woody tone that Gibson ES guitars are known for and this one is really resonant!

This guitar has seen only limited play and has no significant flaws  aside from the factory VOS aging. The frets remain in great condition too, with no observable wear. It comes in it's similarly nice black custom case with the era-correct gold lining, along with the certificate of authenticity.

This is one of the best versions of the iconic ES 335 ever made, so it is quite sad that this model is no longer in production. Make this extremely well-preserved example yours!
