Overview

The ES-275 Figured takes a timeless new design from Gibson Memphis and dresses it in the luxurious look of figured maple top and back. The exotic woods featured in an L-5-inspired medium-depth body are complemented by pearl block markers in a dark Richlite fingerboard, multi-ply body and neck binding, gold-plated hardware including a stylish Zig-Zag trapeze tailpiece, and an ES-355-style headstock. The guitar includes a tubeless Historic truss rod, PAF-style MHS pickups, rolled fingerboard binding, ABR-1 bridge with titanium saddles, a genuine bone nut and more. 

Compared to the L-5 CES, the width and length of the ES-275 have been reduced about 10% and the depth by about 40%. The result still has the full, shapely appeal of the classic Gibson jazz guitars, but in a size that’s more comfortable to put your arms around. The smaller body also gives easier access to the additional 2 frets.

The pots are high quality 500K CTS pots with a .015 mfd for the neck pickup, which doesn’t cut as much of the treble response and makes the sound warm and vocal instead of muddy. Includes hardshell case.

Fully hollow archtop: The ES-275 is inspired by the L-5 shape, yet is more compact, with a 2-inch depth to its fully hollow body
Elegant inlays: Pearl block inlays tie the ES-275 Figured to other top-of-the-line Gibsons like the ES-355
Figured top and back: A beautifully figured maple top and back add visual appeal to this elegant archtop
Rolled fingerboard binding: By "rolling" or "breaking" the binding at the fingerboard edge you experience a softer playing feel
Historic truss rod: The historic truss rod has no tube, a proven known to enhance the guitar's resonance and sustain
MHS pickups: The best PAF reproductions yet, the MHS humbuckers present superb sonic depth with outstanding character and clarity
Titanium bridge saddles: The Zig-Zag tailpiece reflects other historic high-end archtops, while titanium saddles add clarity to the guitar's tone
High-gloss nitro finish: A hand-sprayed high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish brings out the true beauty of the ES-275 Figured

    Comments about Gibson 2016 ES-275 Figured Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

    Of course, Gibson makes a quality guitar and that's to be expected given the price. This one lives up to that standard. The sunburst figured finish with the dark matching neck is quite appealing to me. But what enticed me the most about this guitar is the size and comfort of playing. I like to sit down while playing, and while I love the Les Paul neck, it seems too low on my lap and not well balanced. I've tried many of the other Gibson models, ES-175, ES-335, ES-339, ... and the ES-275 is just right. It feels like an acoustic that is a little thinner and with a really sweet neck that's easy to play. I'm also getting more interested in Jazz, and alternative rock, and this guitar has that motif, but also can be used for other styles. The Les Paul pickups seems a little more diversified in tone, but it's a compromise I can live with. I also like that I can play this guitar without plugging in, for those early morning or late evening sessions. I've only had it for a few weeks but it keeps growing on me, and I think this could be my main guitar for life.

      Comments about Gibson 2016 ES-275 Figured Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

      Absolutely gorgeous guitar that plays beautifully. I play mostly jazz and I love the neck and the tone is fantastic. I think Gibson has created a new classic with the ES-275.

      Nice new Gibson jazzbox

      Comments about Gibson 2016 ES-275 Figured Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

      Beautiful guitar, well built. Nice tuners, much better than usual. I bought this online, without having played one. The neck is fatter than I am used to, since I usually play a Birdland. Great jazz tone, but feedback could be a problem at moderate volume levels, similar to the old ES175. Nice case, and packed very securely for shipping.
