Gibson is a mainstay in the rock world, but it is sometimes easy to forget their colossal jazz presence. From players as revered as Pat Metheny and Wes Montgomery, to the man himself Les Paul; jazz and Gibson have been a hot item going way back. With some exceptions (Les Paul being a huge one), most jazz cats playing Gibsons flock to the hollow bodies in the catalog. This handsome piece is a modern take on those hollow bodied classics, a 2018 Memphis ES-275. With a body thickness somewhere between a 335 a 175, this guitar can cross into rock and fusion while still keeping its roots in jazz. The pickups are warm and mellow, and very round. Roll off the tone to give it a distinctive jazz tone, or crank it up through some fuzz for a rock sound; it can do both! The guitar has the look too, with a Sunset Burst finish and gold hardware that make for a classy aesthetic. The piece was also well taken care of by its previous owner, and it was recently setup by our in-house luthier. Ships in its original hardshell case.
