I don't know if "Gibson Memphis" is Custom Shop or Gibson USA or what, but there are some nice guitars shown including Trini Lopez model. The ES-390, a smaller version of an ES-330, looks really cool.

The ES-390 shown in the video has P90s but at gibson.com it's shown with mini humbuckers. Not sure what is up with that.

He managed to only be slightly less embarrasing than last year when he couldnt stop saying "bail tailpiece" when talking about the 295.

It's just a new iteration for 2014. they will make both a P90 and mini humbucker version. The Memphis stuff was the best in the room... It's all really nice.

Wow, wonder what the street price of that '59 335 is going to be be.
Sounds well sorted out.

What is the 335 Sunburst Studio? No binding on body or neck, any info anywhere?

It's great to see Gibson reaching back and trying to build on their more vintage roots, rather than attempting to come up with some more goofy zoot-suited, whacked out models as we've seen from them in recent years.

Like a more elegant ES-335, but with a bigger neck. Still has the backplate too. Played REALLY well. Should be sold around $1,300.

Thanks Kracdown! That's what I've been waiting for over 30 years, an affordable Gibson 335 w/ a large profile neck!

So....they are bringing back the ES137? Is it a Billie Joe sig, or....? I had a 137 with HBs a few years back and miss it, but my 335 covers that ground better. A 137 with P90s intrigues me.
