Early 2000 year ES 335 origin- Nashville or Memphis?

S/N 00540541


Guitar Dater project says:


Your guitar was made at the

Nashville Plant, TN, USA

February 23rd, 2000

Production Number: 241


As this was first year of Memphis plant- not sure when they started to build the garden variety ES 335 there instead of Nashville.


Any info welcome.


I did send a note to Gibson, but not sure how long they tale to respond.

Does the sticker inside the guitar say "Gibson Memphis", or "Gibson Nashville"?


Also, I think the last three digits of the serial number is an identifier.



It is just a white round label. It does not say Nashville or Memphis.

It has handwritten on it "ES 335" and then the serial number 00540541
