Lovies Guitars is excited to present this 2017 Gibson Memphis Custom 1958 Reissue ES-335TD VOS with a ’58 Burst Finish! Snatch up a vintage-spec’d Gibson Memphis 1958 ES-335 Reissue semi-hollowbody electric guitar! A re-creation of the “dot neck” version during its first-year debut, the 1958 ES-335 Reissue captures the essence of the original with incredible detail, up to and including its “Mickey Mouse ears” body shape and unbound fingerboard. This guitar’s all-maple, semi-hollow construction delivers a lively, vibrant sound with incredible sustain. Historically accurate MHS humbuckers yield a gorgeous airy tone. Complete with hot hide-glued quartersawn Adirondack spruce bracing for true vintage tone, the Gibson Memphis 1958 ES-335 Reissue semi-hollowbody electric guitar is equally at home with jazz, fusion, country, blues, and rock.

The first ES-335s that rolled off the Gibson production line have truly 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 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. The semi-hollowbody has a 3-ply maple top and back with quartersawn Adirondack spruce bracing secured with hot hide glue, yielding a lively and vibrant sound with incredible sustain. The vintage-spec mahogany neck is topped with an unbound rosewood fretboard and sports a historic truss rod. Grab a Gibson Memphis 1958 ES-335 Reissue, and see what you’ve been missing.

Tonal excellence is yours when you plug the Gibson Memphis 1958 ES-335 Reissue into your favorite tube amplifier. Loaded with a pair of Memphis Historic Spec (MHS) alnico pickups, each with its own volume and tone controls, with this guitar 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.

When you want a premium hollowbody or semi-hollowbody guitar, there’s nothing like a Gibson. 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. This guitar is in minty shape with light pickguard marks and a few micro marks, rated at 9.9/10.
