Buying Guide: Gibson Memphis Electric Guitars

In 2000, Gibson opened a new facility in Memphis, Tennessee, devoted exclusively to building semi-hollowbody and fully hollowbody guitars. Nestled in the heart of downtown Memphis, the Gibson Memphis factory produces some of the most iconic guitars in the world. What makes this factory truly special is the care that goes into each and every guitar that comes off the line. You won't find arrays of robot arms here; leaky old presses and good old-fashioned elbow grease are what gives each Memphis model its soul. Every guitar that comes out of this factory is truly one of a kind, with a life all its own.

Gibson ES-335 Electric Guitars
The Gibson 335 was the first semi-acoustic, or semi-hollowbody guitar ever made. Since 1958, the 335 has been the go-to guitar for players seeking electric performance with acoustic overtones and vibe. Thanks to this "split personality," the 335 is one of the most versatile guitars around, solidifying its place as a workhorse guitar worthy of any stage or song.

Ted McCarty, the legend behind the 335's design, says, "I came up with the idea of putting a solid block of maple in an acoustic model. It would get some of the same tone as a regular solidbody -- plus the instrument's hollow wings would vibrate and we'd get a combination of an electric solidbody and a hollowbody guitar."

Gibson ES-175 Electric Guitars
Gibson's ES-175 "jazz box" is a truly iconic design. Featuring dual or single pickup configurations, premium all-laminate wood construction, and a rosewood fingerboard, the 175 produces an abundance of warm, rich tone. The florentine cutaway is instantly recognizable, along with the 175's trapeze tailpiece and wooden Tune-O-Matic bridge. These vintage trappings create a visual and tonal experience like no other. March to the beat of your own drummer? Meet your new axe.
 
 
Gibson ES-339 Electric Guitars
For players who prefer the size and feel of a solid-body guitar but still want the rich and warm tone of a 335, Gibson offers the ES-339. The ES-339 has all of the design characteristics of the 335, in a more compact design. The 339 features a lightly arched top, real f-holes, a solid maple center block, and rounded cutaways for incredible upper fret access. If you've ever found a 335 to be a bit bulky and unwieldy, the 339 will give you all the tone you need, in a size that's more comfortable.

Gibson Memphis Unique Offerings: ES Les Paul and More

Featuring a weight-relieved Les Paul body, f-holes, a '59 profile neck, spruce top bracing, and MHS unpotted pickups, the ES Les Paul pairs the open warmth of the 335 with the punchy dynamics and growl of the Les Paul. Rounding out our selection of Gibson's unique offerings, models like the 295 and the 355 present even more tonal options for the discerning player.

Gibson ES-345 Electric Guitars
The Gibson ES-345 is instantly recognizable, thanks to its "Mickey Mouse" cutaways and split trapezoid inlays. Introduced as an upgrade to the 335, the 345 adds Varitone electronics. The Varitone circuit allows you to filter your signal through a variety of frequency notches, giving you a quick and easy way to modify your tone circuit's response. With the 345, you can expand your tonal palette beyond what a typical tone knob can do, making this a highly versatile model.
