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.

Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.

You Just Can't Miss

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Gibson ES-355 Electric Guitar with Bigsby:

If you've never played an ES355, you should. The ebony fingerboard makes for the easiest string bends. Being a blues and jazz player, I keep a fat archtop for jazz and my ES355 for blues. Plug this into a Twin and it's absolutely heaven. I bought the red one with the hardtail set-up. The Bigsby set-up is for rockabilly - and if you're into that you should be playing a Gretsch anyway.

best investment ever

By Bluedevl

from North Carolina

Comments about Gibson ES-355 Electric Guitar with Bigsby:

I bought a Gibson 355 in 1979 (when they were made in Kalamazoo) and it still out performs my other guitars. Excellent investment. You cant buy one now for what I paid for in then. I own a Martin, Fender and Yamaha and they cant touch the Gibson.

a classic beauty

By Popsola

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Gibson ES-355 Electric Guitar with Bigsby:

I've had my ES 355 for several months and like it alot. I do a lot of string bendind and the ebony fretboard has kess drag than a rosewood fretboard-a real plus. Add to that the big block inlays and string bends are effortless. The '57 classic pickups had great output and at full tilt get just a bit nasty-great for blues solos. Finally, as a limited run, this guitar will be a nice collectibble piece in the future. Gibson's Custom shop comes through again!

B.B. King and Keith Richards can't both be wrong

By KeefRiffHard

from Undisclosed

Comments about Gibson ES-355 Electric Guitar with Bigsby:

Strap on this tank of a guitar and prepare for battle. If you want that live Stones sound, plug this into a Fender Twin and let it wail. Not for the faint of heart or people with bad backs. Awesome finish, gold hardware, and tone. 'Nuff Said.

Memphis ES-355 - A Beauty

By Old Guy-eMAPQ

from Taylorsville, CA

Comments about Gibson ES-355 Electric Guitar with Bigsby:

Solid, sturdy instrument, flawless finish, quality all the way. Mellow tone, good range through my Marshall, fast neck, a little heavier than I expected for a semi, but not bothersome. Cord plug on face will take getting used to after being comfortable with a Strat. Easy to see the attraction with this Gibson ES-355.
