I purchased my first Gibson guitar about a week ago a 2014 Gibson Memphis ES-335 Studio. I absolutely love the stripped down simplified form of this guitar. But it is hard to find any info on this guitar, and the info I do find it seems to list both the 2014 and the 2015 in the same group. Both have the simplified single master tone/volume pots, the output jack is on the side instead of on the top, Grover tuners, maple block, and no pick guard. But I came across a video from NAMM 2015 in the Gibson booth where they claimed there are improvements with the 2015 Studio but they didn't go into detail. Now I cannot find a comparison of either guitar, hell I can't find actual build sheets on either guitar. Does anybody know the different between the two? What were the improvements made in the 2015 model over the 2014? I guess in the long run it does not matter because I have a 2014, but curiosity is besting me.
Hello everyone. I'm new here, I hope this is an appropriate post & in the appropriate spot. I own a very beautiful vintage 1979 Kramer DMZ 5000 Bass Guitar with its original tan Kramer hard shell case & tan strap. I've done a lot of research on it, but still consider myself fairly uneducated on it; especially its appraisal/price. In addition to information below, there are high definition photos of it. The serial number is 05736 and it's made in the USA. It works perfectly and, as far as I know, all of the electronics and all of the parts for that matter are the original factory parts. Does anyone have any insight into what this bass is realistically worth? Reverb has one at $700 and another at $2250...so, yeah. Thanks I guess. Taking into consideration that it really is in very, very good condition (played under 10 times in the 9 years I've owned it), has all original parts (I think), is the upgraded version of the '79 DMZ 5000 (the fretboard inlays are an example of this) & has its original hard shell case? Alas, the one downside is I am not the original or first owner (obviously) Pictures are attached, I really appreciate any advice. Thanks! Gold
Greetings, i was curious to know how rare an ebony finish is for the Gibson Custom EDS 1275 model produced in recent years. I have this model in this finish but do not come across others. Thank you for your interest!
