Vintage Design Guitar by CreamTone • Survivor Series • Gibson Memphis Custom Shop 2012 ES-335 • CreamTone Vintage Design •
Occasionally we are presented with an opportunity to acquire a great guitar that's been damaged or neglected. It's a labor of love to bring these amazing instruments back to life and pure joy to hear them make music again. These are our Survivors!
We've rebuilt this Gibson Memphis ES-335 Figured from the ground up with the full line of authentic CreamTone parts. Each piece is handcrafted in the USA for best quality and performance.
On the way from the factory to the dealer, she suffered a headstock crack in transit. The repair had already been completed when we got the guitar and it is a well-done pro job, solid as a rock. This one has been a favorite that we've taken on stage many times, so expect some authentic play wear that only adds to the vintage vibe of the instrument. We've admittedly been dragging our feet about parting with it. Once you play it, you'll understand why! The slim, 60's neck just begs to be played all night long.
The finish is 100% original, as are the Plek’d frets and nut. The rest of the guitar is pure CreamTone! The Gibson Custom OHSC, Gibson COA and booklet are included along with a CreamTone COA.
It has been set up with our favorite Billy Gibbons Signature Strings (10-46) and dialed in to play like a dream. Of course, things can settle a bit during shipping and minor adjustments may be necessary when you unpack it, so we're including an extra set of strings in the case.
This is an opportunity to own a Gibson Memphis ES-335 with a AAA figured one-piece top and back for thousands less than the current MAP of $3849 due to the headstock repair. And unlike the others, this one has been upgraded to vintage spec with CreamTone—making it an instrument that you'll be proud to take onstage night after night.
