2016 Gibson Memphis
Memphis, Tennessee is home to many pioneering musicians and various genres - from soul to blues to gospel to rock'n'roll, the city's musical diversity cannot be overstated. In the heart of Memphis, skillful luthiers from many backgrounds construct amongst the finest Gibson guitars ever made, and that includes axes from the 2016 Gibson Memphis Series. From their classic appearance to their distinctive tone, 2016 Gibson Memphis guitars are influenced by the Gibson semi hollow and hollow-body six-strings of the 50s and 60s, but also boast impressive modern upgrades.
As soon as you start browsing this catalog, you'll realize quickly that 2016 Gibson Memphis guitars are not designed for the casual hobbyist. These beauties are just as much works of art as they are instruments, and taking a closer look at any of these models would make that obvious. Need a suggestion? Check out the 2016 ES-335 Figured Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar. Elegant and versatile, this guitar sports an exquisitely figured maple top and is loaded with BurstBucker pickups that are calibrated for each position. Along with other key features like a stronger neck, more stable truss rod, rolled neck binding and low profile frets, you'll have a hard time putting this guitar down after you pick it up.
As for hollow bodies, you have more than enough choices to make exploring this section a treat in itself. For a real blast from the past, feast your eyes on the 1959 ES-175D VOS Hollow Body Electric Guitar. This axe uses laminated maple/poplar/maple for the top, back and sides, and period-correct features like two '57 Classic humbuckers for a smooth, one-of-a-kind tone. Available in your choice of Vintage Natural and Vintage Burst finishes, playing this hollow-body guitar is like being transported back to a time when legendary guitarists performed in smoke-filled jazz nightclubs.
And to say your 2016 Gibson Memphis guitar options end there would be an understatement. There are so many other masterpieces that deserve your consideration, you could literally spend all day here. Gibson's knack for innovation has always lied in their ability to look to their past for inspiration while always moving ahead to the future, and the 2016 Gibson Memphis Series proves that.
