Behold!!! A Gibson ES355...I can't remember thhe last time we had one. As new condition. Comes with the works. As good as it gets.
A Class Reissue Of a Legendary Electric Guitar
From blues to jazz to rock, there’s just no substitute for the vibrant tone and supreme playing comfort of the Gibson Custom 1959 ES-355 Reissue. Gibson released the ’355 in the late 1950s as a top-of-the-line companion to the popular ES-335. Its iconic semi-hollowbody, feedback-fighting center block, premium Custombucker Alnico III pickups, and custom wiring harness make the 59 ES-355 Reissue play and sound like a treasured classic. A super-stable solid mahogany neck and Plek’d premium ebony fretboard with rolled binding gives this upscale axe a smooth, precision feel to accommodate diverse playing styles. The Gibson Custom ’59 ES-355 Reissue is a high-class take on a legendary electric guitar that helped shape the sound of modern music.
Legendary tone from alnico humbuckers
The Custom Shop Custombucker pickups in the ’59 ES-355 Reissue are catnip for tube amplifiers. Each with its own volume and tone controls, these unpotted pickups will let you nail chimey country licks as easily as you dial in searing rock tones. The Alnico III magnets give you classic hollowbody-style tones for everything from warm jazz to dirty blues. And handwired with CTS audio taper pots and paper-in-oil capacitors, you’ll have nearly endless tone-shaping control at your fingertips.
Handcrafted by Gibson’s elite luthiers
Meticulously handcrafted by Gibson’s elite Custom Shop luthiers, the 1959 ES-355 Reissue — like every Gibson Custom guitar — receives an ultra-precise Plek Pro setup, which optimizes the fretboard and nut for incredibly accurate intonation and a “just right” feel. And fine details like the solid ebony fingerboard and the 17-degree headstock angle not only add to the amazing tone and feel of this guitar, they remain true to the Gibson’s illustrious ES Series legacy. The vintage-style nitrocellulose lacquer finish is significantly thinner than today’s polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to “breathe.” Nitro finishes not only look amazing; they also enhance the instrument’s tonal qualities. This guitar has the look (and feel) of a lovingly cared-for classic — one that will only improve with age.
Vintage Original Sheen finish, for the look and feel of a classic
Gibson Custom's Vintage Original Sheen finish option comes standard on Custom Shop Historic Reissue models. The VOS finish package includes lightly aged parts that imparts an authentic vintage patina. The nitrocellulose finished it buffed to a light matte appearance, giving a look and feel of a guitar that has been lovingly played and cared for over the years.
