The ES-335′ Fat Neck’ was introduced by Gibson Memphis in 2008 and was primarily aimed at musicians who prefer a slightly stronger, round shaped neck. Be it your own playing technique, larger hands, different resonance characteristics or simply the desire for a particularly authentic “look and feel”, preferences are always very different.
The ‘Fat Neck’ is a tribute to a series of only 521 ES-335 guitars produced at the legendary Gibson factory in Kalamazoo in 1959.
This 2009 guitar comes from Gibson’s Memphis Custom Shop in wonderfully authentic ‘antique Red’. Its got everything that makes a 335 great. The Plek scan identified some improvements in the setup. We have precisely dressed the frets, reworked the saddle and adjusted the truss rod and bridge. The result is phenomenal. The’ Fat Neck’ not only looks beautiful, but the playability is now also at the highest level.
The instrument is in a very good condition, there are only minor signs of wear and tear. If you’re looking for a Gibson ES-335 with a more powerful’ 59 Neckshape, you should try this one.
In addition to the Custom Shop certificate, the guitar also includes some Case Candy and the original Gibson Case.
