Gibson Custom Shop M2M 1959 ES-355 Ebony – Murphy Lab Heavy Aged

The King of the ES Models

What could be better than the legendary ES-335? The ES-355! The ES-355 starts with all the features that make the ES-335 iconic – the feedback-resistant semi-hollowbody construction, the two humbucking pickups with individual volume and tone controls, the legendary sonic versatility and exceptional playability – and kicks it into overdrive with an ebony fretboard that’s adorned with 50s pattern mother of pearl block inlays and 22 authentic medium jumbo frets.

A split diamond headstock inlay, multi-ply binding, and gold hardware further reinforce the fact that the ES-355 is the top of the line ES™ model. This expertly crafted Custom Shop rendition’s attention to detail makes it an outstanding recreation of the legendary and highly-prized 1959 ES-355.

It features heavy aging by the skilled artisans of the Murphy Lab. The Murphy Lab heavy Aged finish treatment, paired with aged hardware, simulates decades of play wear, giving it the unique character, vibe, and feel of an original example from the Gibson Golden Era. A five latch Lifton™ case is also included. This hollow body guitar is a made to measure made to Guitar Hunter. We have an idea to create Keith Richards legendary 1959 ES -355 Ebony with bigsby.
