Stunning perfection in every detail.
The ES-355 Limited Run electric guitar makes one of the great Gibson classics of the late '50s available again as a beautifully crafted and finished Custom Shop masterpiece. This one sports the classic Bigsby vibrato. Includes black levant hardshell case.
The Gibson ES-335 brought hollowbody tradition and solidbody performance together in 1958, and it is still one of the all-time classic guitar designs. It's among the most versatile guitars you can own. Classic semi-hollowbody design and dual '57 Classic Gibson humbuckers combine to produce everything from full-bodied growls to singing sustain. The ES-335 also features a thin-tapered 1960s neck and rosewood fingerboard (24-3/4" scale), body/neck binding, nickel-plated hardware with Grover kidney tuners, Tune-O-Matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece, separate volume and tone controls, and a 3-way switch.

Comments about Gibson ES-355 Electric Guitar with Bigsby:
Simply put, this is the finest guitar that money can buy. Far more unique than any guitar you typically see in the studio or stage, and you can dial in the best version of any guitar sound you've ever heard. Blues, Rock, and Jazz are equally at home on this beauty. Jangly Johnny Marr influenced riffs never sounded so nuanced, Noel Gallagher-type stadium-filling chords never sounded so big and bold, and Chuck Berry wouldn't be Chuck Berry without it. The craftsmanship and finish is nonperil, the ebony fretboard with delicate neck binding feels like you are playing on silk, and the 57 humbucker pickups can be subtly influenced by the volume control to give you any sound you need. The semi-hollowbody gives you more versatile musical pallet than a Les Paul, and the 60's neck is really easy to manuever. Plus, these tend to hold their value better than most Gibsons, and are a solid investment.This thing is so rare and beautiful, pulling it out of the case causes jaws to drop. The negatives are so minimal they hardly deserve mention, but Bigsbys can be tricky during restringing, and the nut should be adjusted by a trusted guitar tech.
