Classic Elements with a Brand New Twist

Raw and refined in equal measure, the new ES-195 from Gibson Memphis is a rock and roll machine pure and simple, but can turn its ferocity to a surprisingly broad range of styles within that realm—and plenty more outside it, too. Combining the rich pedigree of Gibson’s tradition in archtop-electrics with the snarl and attitude of the company’s seminal solidbody rockers, the ES-195 makes a striking statement with both its beguiling looks and monster tone. What’s more, the Gibson ES-195 can turn its hand to jazz without breaking a sweat, thanks to a body proportioned and constructed in homage to the legendary ES-175 but 3/4" thinner and a pair of humbucker-sized P-94 single-coil pickups. But one look at that Firebird-inspired Trini Lopez neck and headstock tells you there’s far more under the hood: add some serious attitude when you hit the strings, then prepare yourself for pure rock fury.

The Gibson ES-195 has a fully hollow body constructed in the ES-175 style, with laminated maple top, back, and sides, arched top and back with traditional f-holes and white top binding. It has a glued-in maple neck with bound rosewood fingerboard inlaid with mother-of-pearl split-diamond position markers. The headstock is patterned after the Trini Lopez model of the 1960s, itself inspired by Gibson’s non-reverse Firebird.

To take you from roaring rock and roll to warm, purring jazz and spankin,’ twangin’ country, the ES-195 is equipped with a pair of Gibson’s popular P-94 pickups modified to give hum canceling performance when played together. Made with genuine Alnico II magnets, these pickups are constructed in the image of the beloved P-90 single coil, and offer the same blend of bite and snarl, but are sized to fit traditional humbucker mounting rings. The standard four-knob control section of two independent volume and tone controls and a three-way Switchcraft™ toggle switch complete the electronics.

The Gibson ES-195 carries Gibson’s legendary Tone Pros bridge with roller saddles on an ebony base, partnered with an authentic Bigsby tailpiece for smooth vibrato action. The Bigsby vibrato tailpiece takes it all to another dimension, letting the ES-195 run from classic rockabilly growl, to meaty country twang, to atmospheric alternative excursions. High-quality Grover Mini tuners grace the six-in-line headstock.

The Gibson ES-195 comes protected in silkscreened Gibson Memphis hardshell case with plush charcoal lining, and includes a Certificate of Authenticity, owner’s manual, and coverage by Gibson’s Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 customer service.
