ES-355 Pays Homage to 1957 Gibson Les Paul Custom

With many of the appointment of the '57 LP Custom Black Beauty, the Gibson Memphis ES-355 Black Beauty features a 1950s body shape and gold hardware, along with distinctive multi-ply binding, a dark rosewood fingerboard that emulates the 57's ebony fingerboard, and Grover "milk bottle" Rotomatic tuners. The ES-355's weight-relieved maple centerblock provides extra sustain without causing discomfort during long gigs, and its three-ply maple/poplar/maple top and back and quarter-sawn Adirondack spruce bracing and mahogany neck are quality tonewoods that provide excellent timbre and a balanced voice. You get vintage-style triple MHS humbuckers and Memphis Premiere Tone Circuit, two volumes, one master tone control, one blend pot, and a toggle switch for selecting the right pickup or combination of pickups for the job. Add in a bone nut, mother-of-pearl block fingerboard inlays, and black top hat control knobs, and it's easy to see how the ES-355 Black Beauty is a fitting tribute to a legendary axe — and a legendary man.

 

Quality components with vintage vibe

The ES-355 Black Beauty features period-correct multi-ply headstock binding (around the body, too), as well as the split-diamond headstock inlay. It has Grover "milk bottle" tuners in gold finish. The ES-355's bone nut is not only traditional, it's also one of the best materials for making guitar nuts due to its density and tonal stability. The guitar's Memphis Historic Spec (MHS) humbuckers emit vintage-style magnetic response and are covered in gold finish like the '57's. The yellowed triple binding, toggle pickup selector, rounded "C" neck shape, and top hat control knobs are historically accurate, too. Talk about authenticity; this guitar is replete with top-notch components and a vintage vibe that guitarists and collectors at Hiendguitar love!
