What we say:
At A Glance
Gibson Custom Shop have spent a lot of time analysing originals in order to create this historically accurate 1959 ES-355 Reissue. The differences here between this and a 335 are the multi-ply binding, ebony fingerboard and pearl inlays. Every detail has been expertly recreated to produce a classic guitar but without any of the problems associated with vintage instruments. The '59 Medium C shape neck is made from solid mahogany and the 3 ply body (maple/poplar/maple) projects sound well while the solid maple centerblock provides stability and helps when plugged in. The Custombucker pickups produce a sweet vintage sound and make this guitar suitable for blues, jazz, rock... almost any genre really. A perfect recreation of a real classic.
Features We Love:
Custombucker Alnico III Pickups
Gibson have not stopped at the aesthetics but have made sure that the pickups here also perform to the same high standard as the guitar itself. Taking influence from PAF tones, they offer a warm, well balanced and full sound. This means they handle clean tones just as well as when you apply some gain.
Kluson Waffleback Tuners
Getting you in tune quickly and making sure that you stay at pitch are the Kluson Wafflebacks. The Pearloid Tips keep with the vintage look and are a great example of those little touches that make all the difference.
Gibson Custom Shop Quality
Gibson Custom Shop is known for their attention to detail and finesse, both of which are present here in abundance. From the authentic '59 neck profile to the hide glue fit, these tiny elements come together to form an accurate recreation of a vintage guitar but without any of the complications that come with an instrument of significant age.
