Gibson Memphis ES-135 Ebony

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Serial: 01002701

Year: 2002


Condition: Very Good

Fingerboard and frets are in great shape with hardly any play wear and tons of life left in them. The neck is nice and straight with super comfortable action and the truss rod functions perfectly. All electronics and parts are original and in perfect working condition.

-Significant marks to back of the neck that have been touched up

-Light scratches to gloss

-Pickguard wear


What if a rockin' ES-335 and a jazzy ES-175 had a child? You'd get the incredibly versatile, semi-hollow Gibson ES-135. Initially produced with P-90s, these later models feature dual humbuckers. High fidelity while still warm and resonant, this guitar has the skillset of a 335 with a bit more jazz and rockabilly capability. It's a mid-point that's hard to put a finger on, but once you're there it feels so right. This guitar is in great players condition with wear consistent with a guitar that was used but not abused. The instrument comes with the original hardshell case. The passcode latch on the case is defective but fixable (see photos).
