  • Description

    Back in August of 2011, Federal Agents raided Gibson Guitar and confiscated fingerboards, neck and even entire guitars. After months of negotiations, Gibson received their necks and bodies back. The Government Series guitars employ the blanks that were returned to Gibson as a reminder that we are "endowed by our creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." These rights are exactly what Gibson Guitar has been founded on, and they will continue to provide happiness to all of their fans regardless of what it takes to defend these rights.

    A timeless Gibson instrument with a new twist, the Limited Run Government Series ES-335 from Gibson Memphis features a classic semi-hollow construction to deliver all of that legendary ES tone and resonance. This killer 335 comes dressed in a sleek Gunmetal Grey finish that's complemented by black binding, a black Corian nut, and an embossed foil stamp black pickguard that displays an Eagle with the Government Series Ribbon. Capped with a rosewood "dot" inlay fingerboard that was recovered after the raid, the neck sports rolled binding for a smooth, comfortable feel along with redesigned neck dimensions for improved strength. Made with the hard rocker in mind, the Government Series ES-335 comes loaded up with a pair of Gibson Dirty Fingers humbuckers. These ultra-hot pickups offer tons of output and sustain, making this ES-335 the ultimate axe for scorching hot leads or powerful, crunchy rhythms. New for 2015, the Government Series ES-335 features a Historic truss rod for improved neck adjustability and tension resilience, high-quality Grover Milk Bottle Rotomatic tuning machines with an 18:1 ratio for classic looks with modern performance, and an F-Hole emblem engraved truss rod cover. The Limited Run Government Series ES-335 comes complete with a Certificate of Authenticity from Gibson Memphis along with a special Currency Green Case with a black plush interior.
