Discover the Iconic 1959 ES-355 at Guitars on Main

Experience the epitome of vintage elegance and exceptional craftsmanship with the Epiphone 1959 ES-355, exclusively reimagined in collaboration with Gibson Custom. This masterpiece, modeled after the prestigious 1959 ES series, promises not only the timeless contours and detailed inlay work of its original but also a modern playability that suits both avid collectors and passionate musicians alike.

The body of the 1959 ES-355 is constructed from a harmonious blend of 5-ply maple and poplar, complete with a solid maple centerblock designed to enhance sustain and minimize feedback. Its neck is carved from a single piece of mahogany into a comfortable 50s Rounded Medium C profile, capped with a luxurious ebony fretboard that boasts exquisite mother-of-pearl block inlays.

Every aspect of this guitar reflects its classic heritage, from the iconic Gibson-style "open book" headstock adorned with Split Diamond and Epiphone logo inlays to the lustrous gold Grover Rotomatic tuners. The attention to detail is meticulous, including a vintage-style VOS finish that captures the spirit of a well-loved instrument.

Sonically, the 1959 ES-355 does not disappoint. It’s equipped with a pair of Gibson Custombuckers, each hand-wired to CTS potentiometers and Mallory capacitors, delivering rich, warm tones that resonate with every note played. The hardware includes a Tune-O-Matic bridge and a Gibson Historic Reissue Aluminum Stop Bar tailpiece, ensuring stable tuning and reliable performance.

This guitar comes encased in a stylish brown and pink hardshell case, bearing the “Inspired by Gibson Custom” logo, safeguarding your investment while exuding a chic vintage vibe.
