Here's something brand new, and a scoop on the Gibson website - from Memphis, the Gibson ES-275 thin hollow body archtop in classic cherry lacquer.  

This interesting instrument is new for 2016 and we've received one of the few in Canada. It's a fully hollow, laminate maple body with a pair of longitudinal braces and f-holes. The neck is mahogany with rosewood fingerboard.  

The body is about 16 inches wide with a rounded venetian cutaway, so it's quite comfortable to hold, and it's very light. The proportions work very well visually - it has a nicely 'full' and well balanced appearance. To me it suggests the 1950's Gibson giant archtops like the ES-350, but in a more compact package.  

The hardware is chrome, with the usual Gibson wiring for a pair of humbuckers, but the toggle switch also has a rubber mount to cut down mechanical switching noise. Vintage Kluson-style tuners with plastic keystone buttons are at the head, a chrome tune-o-matic on a rosewood base, a chrome trapeze tailpiece and strap pins round out the hardware.  

The original Gibson case is included.  

There isn't a lot of information on this guitar - it's too new for even the Gibson site at this point - so if you need more information please use the form below.
