Brand new for 2016, Gibson have incorporated enhanced period-correct features and premium-grade components to their new line of Memphis models.

The Gibson Memphis 2016 ES-335 is a full size hollowbody electric guitar constructed from a stunning Maple/Poplar/Maple body with set-in Mahogany neck to deliver a rich, articulate tone with long sustain. It comes in Faded Lightburst and Cherry finishes.

Another 2016 model is the Gibson Memphis 2016 ES-339 available in Faded Cherry and Sunset Burst. It offers increased playing comfort whilst retaining an incredible hollow body tone, featuring a Maple/Poplar/Maple body, 22 fret Rosewood fingerboard, Burstbucker pickups, tune-o-matic bridge with Titanium saddles and Grover tuners.

The Gibson Memphis 2016 is short, simple, powerful and available to everyone. It follows tradition more faithfully than ever, while at the same time enhancing your playing and listening experience through technological advancements.

Also available is the 2016 ES-339 Satin Guitar in Cherry and Ebony. The Satin ES-339 produces a bright, tight and precise tone with a balanced low and crisp high response.

Every Gibson Memphis guitar receives an ultra-precise Plek Pro setup, which optimizes the fingerboard and nut for perfect action and intonation.

More information about the Gibson Memphis 2016 models will be available at The NAMM Show on the 21st of January.
