To call this guitar legendary would be an understatement. Over the years, the Gibson ES-355 has found itself in the hands of countless iconic guitar players such as, BB King, Chuck Berry, and Keith Richards to name a few. With its feedback-fighting Maple center block, this semi-hollow has carved a tonal home for itself in genres spanning from rock, to blues, to jazz. Its Gibson ’57 Classic pickups reward players with a wide array of tones ranging from full, rich and warm, to spanky, twangy, and biting, all with just a twist of the tone and volume pots. Paired with its full block Mother of Pearl fretboard inlays, Split Diamond peghead inlay, and cream binding on the body and neck, this Gibson Custom Shop ES-355 effortlessly embodies the tone and vintage vibe of its celebrated ancestors.
