What could be better than the legendary ES-335? The ES-355! With all the features that make the ES-335 iconic - from the feedback-resistant semi-hollow body construction, two humbucking pickups with individual volume and tone controls, the legendary sonic versatility and exceptional playability - the ES-355 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.

The Murphy Lab 'Light Aged' finish treatment, paired with lightly aged hardware, simulates decades of subtle playing wear — giving it the unique character, vibe and feel of an original example from Gibson's "Golden Era".
