In 2011 Gibson faced their biggest challange ever when the US Government raided and confiscated many of Gibsons parts such as Necks, bodies and even entire guitars. After a long fought legal battle Gibson emerged victorious and re-aquired the parts back. To celebrate their freedom, these parts were fashioned into the Government Series.
The sub-zero cool Gibson Memphis ES-335 Government Series Guitar!
The core of this ES-335 still incorporates a Maple and Poplar body, with the semi-hollow cutaway body now an iconic fixture in Gibson's lineup. However, a recovered rosewood fingerboard with Gibson's rolled neck binding offers superb playability and complements the finish superbly. The 1-piece mahogany neck has also been redesigned for improved strength around the heel.
Tone is handled by a pair of Dirty Fingers humbuckers, with independent tone and volume controls.his remarkable instrument features a satin Gunmetal Grey finish, unique when compared to the traditional ES lineup. Emblazoned on the pickguard is a gold "American Made" emblem, and every one of these 300 Special Run guitars comes with a unique Certificate of Authenticity.
