A scaled-down 335 with gorgeous appointments and a solid carved top.

The Gibson Custom Shop CS356 Electric Guitar has an elegant and comfortable 13-3/4" wide body (vs. 16" on a 335) providing the incomparable versatility of a genuine semi-hollow, complete with '57 classic humbuckers. The CS356 guitar has a gorgeous figured solid-maple top joined to a tonally carved mahogany back, sides, and center block for huge sound in a small package. Gibson's sumptuous appointments include big mother-of-pearl inlays on a buttery bound ebony fretboard, 7-ply top and back binding, multi-bound turtle pickguard, and brilliant gold hardware, including the classic Bigsby vibrato.
