    Gibson Memphis Figured 1963 ES-335 TDC Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:

    • Updated vintage appointments are more authentic than ever
    • A semi-hollowbody that is true to the original
    • Legendary tone from MHS humbuckers

    Updated vintage appointments are more authentic than ever

    Gibson's latest Custom Shop Reissue guitars include new appointments to add even more authenticity and vintage vibe to their guitars. Necks are now attached using hide glue, which many argue sounds better than synthetic glue. Gibson Memphis Shop also re-engineered the truss rod, truss rod washer, and anchor to their original form. They also eliminated the tubing that surrounded the truss rod. New Kluson Green Key Tuners now feature proper vintage profile, color, and performance specifications. These features and others make the Gibson Memphis Figured 1963 ES-335 TDC one of the most accurate reproductions ever.

    A semi-hollowbody that is true to the original

    The first ES-335s that rolled off the Gibson production line have truly achieved legendary status. The warmth of its semi-hollowbody design; the versatility of its two humbucking pickups - it's a magical recipe that made the original ES-335s sought-after guitars among collectors who are often happy to pay astronomical prices for instruments in good condition. Odds of even finding a "block" '335 from the 1960s today are almost zero. The next best thing is to get your hands on the this Gibson Memphis Figured 1963 ES-335 TDC. It has the looks, the sound, and the star power of the real deal.

    Legendary tone from unpotted MHS humbuckers

    Tonal excellence is yours when you plug the Gibson Memphis Figured 1963 ES-335 TDC into your favorite tube amplifier. Loaded with a pair of unpotted humbucking pickups, each with its own volume and tone controls, you'll be able to dial in chiming country tones as easily as savagely distorted rock tones. The neck pickup gives you classic hollowbody-style tones for everything from smooth jazz to dirty blues. Flip to the bridge position, and you'll command sounds covering everything from bright and clean to raw and mean. The guitar gurus here at Sweetwater all concur: playing this guitar is a sublime experience. We're sure you'll agree!
