Gibson Memphis ESDT-335 Figured Natural, 2012

Instrument Categories: , , ,

Here’s a very nicely figured and very good condition Gibson Memphis ESDT-335 in gloss natural finish, dated to Jul 11 2012 at the now-closed Gibson Memphis plant.

The Gibson Memphis ESDT-335 is a slight variation on the standard ES-335, with the ‘ES’ standing as always for ‘Electric Spanish’. ‘Spanish’ refers to how the guitar is held and played, with one of the few other primary designations being ‘EH’ for ‘Electric Hawaiian’. The ‘D’ stands for Dot Neck, and the final ‘T’ apparently for ‘Figured Top’.

Construction follows the standard 335 pattern, with a solid Maple center block and laminate Maple for top, back and sides. Here, highly figured AAA grade Maple was used. The neck is one piece of Mahogany and the bound, dot-inlay fingerboard is Indian Rosewood. On this Gibson Memphis ESDT-335, the tuners are nickel-plated Grover Roto-Matics with metal kidney-shaped buttons and at the other end a no-wire model ABR tune-o-matic bridge is paired with a stop-bar tailpiece. The pickups are the original BurstBuckers.

This Gibson ESDT335 example sports a natural gloss Maple nitrocellulose lacquer finish over the nicely figured top and back. It looks as if it’s spent most of its life in its case, but plays well and cleanly as is.

The original Gibson-branded, arched top hard shell case with interior shroud by TKL is included, and is in good condition with no significant tears or damage.
