A stunning take on Gibson's top-shelf ES model, Gibson Memphis is excited to introduce the 2016 ES-355 Vintage Ebony Bigsby VOS. Ever since its introduction, the ES-355 has always been the luxury model of the ES lineup, and the 2016 ES-355 Vintage Ebony Bigsby VOS is no exception. It boasts an array of premium features including a vintage Ebony VOS finish, a Bigsby vibrato tailpiece, Grover Rotomatic tuning machines, a set of '57 Classic pickups, gold hardware and block fingerboard inlays.

The top, back and sides of this striking semi are made from 3-ply maple for that classic ES tone and resonance. Dressed in a beautiful classic Ebony VOS finish, the top and back both showcase multi-ply binding to cater to the ES-355's deluxe aesthetic. Shaped into a comfortably rounded traditional "C" profile, the 3-piece mahogany neck sports a richlite fingerboard featuring 22 frets using period-correct fretwire and a superbly playable 12" radius. The fingerboard also features mother-of-pearl block inlays and rolled binding for a smooth, comfortable fretting hand feel that's matched by truly elegant looks.

Equipped with a pair of '57 Classic pickups, the 2016 ES-355 Vintage Ebony Bigsby VOS serves up all those warm, juicy tones delivered by those coveted vintage "Patent Applied For" humbuckers. The pickups are routed through a classic control layout, featuring independent Volume and Tone controls for each pickup. The Memphis Tone Circuit allows you to hear the full range of the pickups, boasting capacitors selected to enhance the tone of each position.

Enhancing the upscale vibe, all the hardware employed on the 2016 ES-355 Vintage Ebony Bigsby VOS is gold-plated. A set of Grover Milk Bottle Rotomatic tuners offer the perfect blend of retro styling with modern features and performance. For that time-tested vibrato wobble and world-renowned Gibson sustain,  the 2016 ES-355 Vintage Ebony Bigsby VOS comes fitted with a classic ABR-1 bridge and a Bigsby B-7 vibrato tailpiece.

The 2016 ES-355 Vintage Ebony Bigsby VOS features an F-Hole emblem engraved truss rod cover, a historic truss rod assembly for superior adjustability, and a bone nut for smooth tuning and amazing durability.
