Finished with multiple binding, the semi-hollow body features an additional center block made of solid maple, which allows the model to play at higher gain settings without unwanted Feedback. Other premium features of the ES-355 include a solid ebony fingerboard with 22 frets in the historically correct medium Jumbo format that evokes the classic's renowned playability.

Alnico III proven custom bucker and hand-wired circuit with oil paper capacitors promise authentic vintage sounds.

Hand-wired electrics with custombucker pickups and paper-in-oil caps.

Also the wiring of the Gibson 1959 ES-355 Watermelon Red Light Aged remains true to the original of the late fifties and relies on real paper-in-oil capacitors as well as potentiometers from the component manufacturer CTS. On the other hand, the combination of two Gibson Custom Bucker humbuckersprovides appropriate sounds at the amplifier. The hand-wound double coilers originate from the Gibson Custom Shop and are based on years of analysis of original PAF humbuckers of the era, and the coveted sound of this iconic pickup to come as close as ever.

In addition to its premium appointments, the ES-355 Watermelon Red Light Aged naturally showcases classic premium visual features of the original ES-355. Accordingly, the ebony fingerboard features a wraparound Binding and chic 1950s Pattern pearl block inlays instead of the usual dots, while the custom Diamond on the headstock of this premium model naturally cannot be missed. Finishing off the Gibson ES-355 is an authentic Light Ageing by the Gibson Murphy Lab, which authentically recreates the lacquer texture of an original that has been preserved over the decades with slight signs of aging.
