Gibson Memphis unveils 2018 guitar range

PRESS RELEASE: The 2018 Gibson ES-275 Custom in Sunset Burst finish is a reinvented classic archtop designed with the modern player in mind.

Honoring the long tradition of Gibson’s great jazz guitars in looks, tone and feel, the ES-275 Custom offers players of any musical genre a timeless instrument with modern functionality.

For improved access to the 22 fret dark rosewood fretboard, the thinline body design features a single rounded cutaway.
