An absolutely stunning, 1959 ES-330 reissue from the glory years of Gibson's now sadly defunct Memphis factory.
Memphis guitars are now attracting a premium in the second-hand market, especially these highly flamed 330s, which are difficult to obtain new. This particular model is the crème de la crème, being a Wildwood-spec guitar and dating from 2015, the year that Gibson Memphis moved to historically correct wider, flatter frets, in contrast to the tall, narrow frets that they had used up to that time.
Not only is the fret wire on these later guitars more historically accurate, it also makes for a much nicer playing experience.
This particular example has just the single, careful owner from new who has hardly played it and aside from some small pick marks on the pickguard it is in pretty much MINT condition!
It also sounds and plays beautifully, with a flawless figured maple top, back and sides, that classic '59 neck profile and a lovely dark rosewood board. In excellent condition with no modifications, scrapes or dings (just a bit of fairy scratching on the pickguard) this guitar is a modern under-the-bed find.
Complete with the original case, certificate and warranty card.
