A semi-hollow body electric with the perfect combination of comfort and tone.
This Gibson Custom Shop CS-356 Electric Guitar has an elegant and comfortable scaled-down ES double cutaway body with a carved top made of maple and a tonally carved mahogany back, centerblock, and sides. The one-piece mahogany neck has a 1960s slim taper profile that is ultra-fast and fully accessible. The guitar's 22-fret Richlite fretboard is bound and adorned with mother-of-pearl block inlays. The Gibson CS-356 is loaded with Classic '57 humbucker pickups with Alnico II magnets, giving you the sound that defined the music of the late '50s. All the hardware on this beauty is brilliant gold, including the vintage Kluson tulip style tuners, the ABR-1 bridge and stopbar tailpiece. Comes with a hardshell guitar case, certificate of authenticity, and custom care kit
