G'day all,

I've just picked up my first ES, a 2003 ES-335 in Cherry Red. It's been well played, with lovely natural aging and feels great so far.

The shop I bought it from told me it was a Nashville build and came with the original hardcase. Problem is the hardcase says Gibson Custom, and the sticker doesn't say where it was built. My research tells me it was probably a Memphis build due to its birth year, but I'm really not sure. There was no Gibson Custom certificate in the case, which may have been lost or kept by the original owner, if in fact it actually is.

My thoughts are its a standard run, Memphis built 2003 ES-335. Can anyone give an input?

Cheers, Willsy

Maybe call Gibson and see if they can look it up?

Whether it was made Memphis or Nashville or Timbuktu, that is one nice-looking guitar!
