Epiphone announces the Ltd. Edition ES-355.
The Ltd. Edition guitar will be available in Alpine White, Ebony, and classic Cherry.
The Epiphone features a wood block that runs through the center of the Maple body so the pickups are mounted much the same way as in a solid body guitar, surrounded by two hollow chambered areas with violin style f-holes.
The guitar uses gold Alnico Classic™ humbucker in the neck and a golds Alnico Classic Plus™ humbucker in the bridge position. The ES 355’s 3-way toggle/pickup selector switch is an aged vintage orange and is wired for the standard configuration with position one controlling the neck pickup’s volume while position two controls the bridge pickup’s volume.
Tuning stability is assured with gold Grover 14:1 ratio machine heads with kidney style buttons, a gold Epiphone LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge, a gold output, and a gold Bigsby B70 Tremolo. An optional hard case is also available.
This guitar looks awesome and it’ll be at a very affordable price. Visit the Gibson website for more details.
