Introducing the Cherry Red 1959 ES-355 at Guitars on Main

Step into a world where vintage charm meets contemporary precision with the Cherry Red Epiphone 1959 ES-355, beautifully crafted in collaboration with Gibson Custom. This guitar is a faithful tribute to the distinguished ES models of 1959, showcasing classic aesthetics alongside features designed for today's musician.

Crafted with a 5-ply maple/poplar body and a solid maple centerblock, the Cherry Red ES-355 stands out not only for its vibrant color but also for its robust build quality, designed to enhance sustain and reduce feedback. The one-piece mahogany neck, shaped into a 50s Rounded Medium C profile, is topped with an ebony fretboard adorned with mother-of-pearl block inlays, ensuring smooth playability and luxurious feel.

The iconic Gibson-style "open book" headstock is strikingly inlaid with the Split Diamond and Epiphone logos in mother-of-pearl, complemented by gold Grover Rotomatic tuners. The body’s Cherry Red finish is applied with a Vintage Original Sheen, giving it the allure of an ageless classic.

Sound-wise, the guitar features a duo of Gibson Custombuckers, each meticulously hand-wired with CTS potentiometers and Mallory capacitors, offering a tone that is both deep and resonant. Its reliable hardware, including a Tune-O-Matic bridge and Gibson Historic Reissue Aluminum Stop Bar tailpiece, ensures that each performance is as flawless as the last.

Each Cherry Red 1959 ES-355 comes with a stylish brown and pink hardshell case adorned with the “Inspired by Gibson Custom” logo, combining security with elegance.

Dive into the rich history and outstanding performance of the Cherry Red 1959 ES-355, now available at Guitars on Main. Perfect for those who value exceptional sound and standout aesthetics in their musical journey.
