We present an all original and early 1960 Gibson ES-355 TDC Mono in its original Cherry finish. Made in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
This rare piece is in excellent condition with minor fading spots and other cosmetic wear and the original gold parts have become aged over the years so they have a beautiful look. What makes this 355 so unique is the fact that it has factory Mono wiring instead of standard Stereo Varitone. Beautiful figured doublecutaway maplebody.
