Own a Limited Edition Gibson with Modern Performance and Vintage Style- The Limited Edition 2018 Gibson ES-335 '61 Memphis in Historic Burst

Beginning in 1960, Gibson looked to slim down the chunky round neck profile on the revolutionary ES-335 of the 1950s. In 1961, the ES-335 featured a thinner flatter neck that players immediately appreciated for having a comfortable feel and fast action. The 2018 ES-335 '61 is a historically accurate recreation of the ES-335 that combined 1950's looks with 1960's playability. The "mouse ear" body shape, rounded 60's Slim Taper neck profile, and dark rosewood fingerboard with Pearloid dot inlays, ensure that there is no mistaking this guitar's lineage. Featuring an MTC Historic control assembly and our PAF-style MHS Humbucking pickups for classic Gibson tones.
