A New Breed of ThinlineTo say that Gibson's Memphis division has a rich tradition of excellence would be the understatement of the century. But, they've never been afraid to try new things, and their desire to innovate is what helped build their storied tradition. The ES-275 Thinline is a new addition to the Gibson Memphis family, but it can stand toe-to-toe with any classic semi-hollow of the past or present.
The magic starts with Gibson's classic 3-ply Maple/Poplar/Maple veneer body, although this divine thinline has AAA figured maple on the top ply. Beneath this beautiful body, Gibson's tone engineers have done lots of cool things to promote maximum resonance. It has a thermally engineered chambered maple center block, which adds sustain, focus, and clarity to the ES-275 Thinline's sound. Speaking of thermal engineering, the Adirondack spruce bracing receives the same treatment, which makes the guitar open and articulate. The treatment these pieces of wood receive also gives the ES-275 Thinline a bit of woody vintage character.
So, the ES-275 Thinline has a delightful unplugged voice. It's rich, open, and clear, and it only gets better when you plug in. Two Memphis Historic Spec humbuckers give the ES-275 Thinline textbook vintage PAF sound. The bridge pickup has chiming highs, touch-sensitive midrange, and round lows, while the neck pickup has deep, rich bass to go with woody midrange and singing highs. All sorts of genres live in the ES-275's wheelhouse, and its versatility is a testament to the extraordinary skill of the Gibson Memphis team.
We believe that the Gibson ES-275 Thinline is an excellent addition to the Gibson Memphis family, and we are proud to showcase an instrument that sounds good and looks pretty! We're sure it will bring the semi-hollow enthusiasts of the Wildwoodiverse years of inspiration.
