2016 Gibson Memphis 1958 ES-335 VOS anyone?
Fitted with a Bigsby B7 and a set of Throbak PAFs this guitar is ready to knock your socks off.
Aside from these changes, the guitar is otherwise stock and in excellent condition. The finish is still exquisite with no signs of any real wear.
The neck is in great shape as are the frets and fretboard. Thankfully Gibson Memphis didn’t decide to stick too slavishly to the specifications of the original model and set the neck at a four degree angle.
Plastics and hardware are good condition
The guitar comes with it correct hardshell case.
This is a great guitar and worthy of the reputation its gaine over the past few years. The neck is comfortable without being too chunky and the guitar is responsive, yielding a wide scope of classic tones, ably supported by the Throbak pickups.
What you've heard is true and those of you in search of this model should get your hands on this guitar post haste…
