$3,299.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2007 Gibson Memphis ES-335 Dot in excellent condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case and augmented with a Bigsby B7 vibrato. A discontinued iteration of the ES-335 platform, this guitar was crafted at Gibson's lauded and now shuttered Memphis, TN factory and captures many iconic early specs of the ES-335. Tonewoods include maple/poplar/maple semi-hollow body construction with a maple center block and spruce bracing, paired with a one-piece mahogany neck and bound rosewood fretboard with dot inlay.

The '57 Classic PAF humbuckers give this ES-335 a smooth bass register, tailored midrange, and sweet, articulate trebles, consistent with Gibson's golden era vintage "Patent Applied For" pickups. The pickups have ample clarity and power, with a slightly hotter bridge pickup and a sweet, round neck position humbucker that has great bloom and complex harmonic content. Weighing 9lbs, this ES-335 Dot has a defined and balanced acoustic voice that translates well through the pickups, and it's easy to see why the ES-335 has historically been one of Gibson's most versatile models, adopted by a wide range of genres for its ability to provide everything from nuanced cleans to rich, powerful drive. We've had this ES-335 professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action and accurate intonation.

The Vintage Sunburst two-tone gloss nitro lacquer finish highlights light ripples of broad curly flame on top, more dense and three-dimensional across the back, with additional flame figuring across the Walnut-finished rims. There is light buckle wear on the upper bout, pick scuffing across the strum path (largely relegated to the pickguard) and just a few additional faint marks. The top presents very cleanly, and the gloss on the neck profile is flawless.

The original black tolex Gibson hardshell case is included.
