This exclusive limited edition was only available during 2019, and our example here is new old dealer stock, in 100% brand new condition – still has that “new car” smell! – and could well be the guitar that completely turns your musical life around!
Fully handcrafted at Gibson's famous Beale Street Custom Shop in Memphis, the spec’s list is almost mind-boggling. Closely modelled on the legendary 1958 original, but with a dynamite set of Memphis Historic Spec (MHS) P-90 single-coils, plus Memphis Tone Control circuitry, elsewhere you get :-
Classic ES-335 Maple & Poplar body construction
Hand-carved Spruce bracing
Solid Maple centre-block, for that unmistakeable 335 tone & sustain
Vintage-aged front & rear binding
Genuine Gibson nitro finish
Maple neck, with late fifties rounded C-profile
12” radiused Rosewood fingerboard, with pearl dot inlays
Grover Rotomatic tuners
ABR-1 bridge with titanium-plated brass saddles
Zinc diecast stopbar tailpiece with locking studs
Hand-wired 500k pots & Orange Drop caps
Bridge pickup wired in reverse polarity, for humbucker quiet in the middle position
As we noted at the front, this is pretty much a Casino with a centre block – but many thousands of dollars less than trying to source a vintage model like the ones made famous by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. The MHS pickups possess a cutting tone that you don’t get with regular single-coils and humbuckers. Check out Carlos Santana’s performance at the original Woodstock festival, (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaaT_HRb4GU) Although he was using an SG that day, the tone of our P-90 335 is extraordinarily similar.
