In the year 2000, Gibson kicked open the doors of the Memphis Custom Shop, appropriately just one block from the blues and barbeque joints that line Memphis' legendary Beale Street. A premier Gibson production facility, the Beale Street location has become one of the most well-known sites in the area. Home to some of the world's preeminent luthiers, the Memphis Custom Shop specifically handcrafts Gibson's fine Electric Spanish and Archtop lines, producing models like B.B. King's Lucille, the ES-175 and the iconic ES-335, the world's original semi-hollowbody. For more information on the Gibson Memphis Custom Shop visit www.gibson.com.
