Masterfully-built in America, the 1959 ES-355 Reissue features a three-ply maple/poplar/maple body with rounded cutaways and a solid maple centerblock, along with a royalties binding and a lacquer Ebony finish. The Murphy Lab Light Aged finish treatment, paired with lightly aged gold hardware, simulates decades of natural play-wear, giving it the unique character, vibe and feel of an original example from the Gibson Golden Era. With a solid mahogany authentic ’59 medium C-profile neck and a dazzling Indian rosewood fingerboard adorned with twenty-two authentic medium jumbo frets and 1950s pattern mother-of-pearl inlays, this guitar feels as great as it looks!
Two Custombucker Alnico 3 unpotted pickups are installed, capable of producing a tasteful vintage-style voice that locks down all of the old-school Gibson tone and power you crave for your music. It’s controlled by two volume and two tone controls, with CTS 500K audio taper potentiometers and paper-in-oil capacitors, as well as a three-way toggle switch. Other vintage-replica parts include the stunning ABR-1 bridge and the lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece, while the Grover tuning machines keep your tuning stable. The Custom Shop Murphy Lab 1959 ES-355 Reissue makes for an outstanding recreation of a legendary original — available now at Replay Guitar Exchange!
