HOLD – Gibson Custom Shop 1959 ES-355 Reissue VOS Ebony Bigsby 8.13 #A90296

Serial Number: #A90296

What could be better than the legendary ES-335? The ES-355! The ES-355 starts with all the features that make the ES-335 iconic – the feedback-resistant semi-hollowbody construction, the two humbucking pickups with individual volume and tone controls, the legendary sonic versatility and exceptional playability – and kicks it into overdrive with an ebony fretboard that’s adorned with 50s pattern mother of pearl block inlays and 22 authentic medium jumbo frets. A split diamond headstock inlay, multi-ply binding, and gold hardware further reinforce the fact that the ES-355 is the top of the line ES™ model. This expertly crafted Custom Shop rendition’s attention to detail makes it an outstanding recreation of the legendary and highly-prized 1959 ES-355. A five latch Lifton™ case is also included.
