Overview

Maple-topped semi-hollowbody with vintage humbuckers.

Classic, Gibson Custom appointments adorn this Limited-Edition CS-356 model guitar. It features a carved solid maple top with chambered solid mahogany back and sides. The result is deep archtop tones in a deceptive ES-style package. The compact body shape is well-balanced and resists feedback while remaining extremely resonant, amplified by a pair of singing ‘57 Classic humbuckers. In both beauty and brawn, the Gibson Custom CS-356 guitar reigns supreme.

Features

  • Carved solid maple top, chambered solid mahogany back and sides
  • Solid mahogany long tenon neck with medium C-shape, Richlite fretboard
  • Dual Gibson '57 Classic humbuckers, Switchcraft toggle switch, hand-wired harness, 500K CTS volume and tone pots
  • ABR-1 bridge, stopbar tailpiece, Kluson Deluxe Green Key tuners
