Gibson ES-355 1959 Reissue Stop Bar Murphy Lab Ultra Light Aged Ebony #A90501


The King is back – long live the King!

With the launch of the legendary Gibson ES-335 semi-hollow body guitar, an additional luxury version of this model was also brought onto the market: the Gibson ES-355. Equipped with such noble ingredients as golden hardware, a multi-layered body binding, a "Split Diamond" headstock inlay and decorative "Mother of Pearl" block inlays, it soon received the nickname "King of the ES Models". In addition, instead of the usual rosewood fingerboard, the ES-355 has been given an elegant ebony fingerboard, which gives the ES-355 a pleasantly soft tone. More luxury is not possible!

Everything only from the finest!

With great attention to detail, only selected tonewoods were used for the construction of this outstanding 1959 ES-355 Reissue in the Gibson Custom Shop. The body is made of three-ply maple / poplar / maple and is particularly feedback-resistant due to its construction. Particularly noteworthy is the "Quarter Sawn" Adirondack spruce wood used for the bracing of the ES-355. This ensures a balanced sound, good sustain and an excellent resonance. The noble wood ingredients are rounded off by a 1 Pc. Mahogany neck with a dark ebony fingerboard. Together with the installed Custombucker Alnico III pickups, which come very close to the sound of the legendary P.A.F. Humbuckers, this is a guarantee for top-class sound quality! Just made for Jazz, Blues and Rock.

And the best comes at least – pure Mojo through Murphy Lab Aging!

Actually, you can't beat such a classy guitar from the Gibson Custom Shop. But now it does! Since Tom Murphy and Thom Fowle have been doing the final aging in the Gibson Custom Shop, the Gibson Custom Shop models have reached the absolute top level! The "Murphy Lab" distinguishes between different aging variants, whereby here an "Ultra Light" aging being used. This ultra-light finish treatment from Murphy Lab is characterized by subtle lacquer aging in combination with slightly aged hardware. This gives the impression of a guitar that has always been treated with care and has spent many years on the stage. This gives the player an authentic look & feel of an old instrument that is second to none! In a word: pure mojo!
