Product information - GIBSON 1959 ES-355 Reissue Stopbar Ebony

ES-355 Reissue electric guitar from the Gibson Custom Shop, including case and certificate

As a premium version of the legendary ES-335, the Gibson 1959 ES-355 Reissue Stopbar Ebony from Gibson Custom Shop impresses with its classic noble look, authentic sounds and unmistakable feel. Built to original 1959 specifications, this semi-hollow model showcases the impressive attention to detail of Gibson's custom builders and features some interesting refinements that give the ES-355 its coveted charm. Of course, Gibson gives the instrument an original Lifton case and adds an additional certificate that confirms the authenticity of this special edition.

Semihollow-Body with Long Neck Tenon

As a guarantor for a direct response and the greatest possible resonance, the ES-335 Reissue Stopbar uses the long glued neck, called Long Neck Tenon, which is considered a particularly important construction feature among connoisseurs and collectors. For the body composition, Gibson follows the classic recipe of 3-ply maple and poplar laminate with additional maple center block, while the mahogany neck features a 22-fret ebony fingerboard with 1950s Pattern Mother-of-Pearl block inlays and the popular Authentic '59 Medium C profile of original instruments from the late 1950s.

Custombucker Pickups with Paper-in-Oil Caps

As the most successful recreation of the early Gibson humbuckers, two Custombucker humbuckers with Alnico III magnets wound in the Custom Shop give the ES-355 Reissue its unmistakable voice. The hand-wired electronics offer, following the example, separate controls for Volume and Tone of the US manufacturer CTS, in order to be able to assign a variety of individual sound settings to both pickups. The Treble rolloff of the tone knobs is done via historically correct paper-in-oil capacitors, so that both humbuckers can elicit their full tonal potential at any time, from warm jazz leads to authentic 'woman tone'.

Historic hardware and finish

In addition, the Gibson 1959 ES-355 Reissue Stopbar Ebony features the all-gold-look hardware appointments of the original Premium model. The proven combination of ABR-1 Tune-o-Matic and lightweight aluminum stopbar ensures direct resonance transmission into the body, while the original Kluson waffleback tuners provide the classic ES look. Of course, the famous Split Diamond headstock inlay is not to be missed on this premium version. Last but not least, the body and neck are finished with a VOS nitrocellulose finish that recreates the unique feel of classic Gibson guitars with amazing precision.
