You are looking at a Gibson Limited Run 2016 ES-355 Bigsby Sixties Cherry VOS Semi-Hollow Body Electric Guitar, serial number 11166744. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (9 lbs, 3.1 oz.)

A stunning take on Gibson's top-shelf ES model, Gibson Memphis is excited to introduce this special Limited Run ES-355 Bigsby. Ever since its introduction, the ES-355 has always been the luxury model of the ES lineup, and the Limited Run ES-355 Bigsby is no exception. It boasts an array of premium features including a gorgeous Sixties Cherry 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 traditional-style Sixties Cherry lacquer 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 mahogany neck sports a richlite fingerboard featuring 22 frets using Historic 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 Limited Run ES-355 Bigsby 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.

Enhancing the upscale vibe, all the hardware employed on the Limited Run ES-355 Bigsby 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 Limited Run ES-355 Bigsby comes fitted with a classic ABR-1 bridge and a Bigsby B-7 vibrato tailpiece.

The ES-355 Bigsby features an F-Hole emblem engraved truss rod cover, redesigned neck dimensions for added strength and stability, a historic truss rod assembly for superior adjustability, and a bone nut for smooth tuning and amazing durability.

The Limited Run ES-355 Bigsby comes complete with a hardshell case and a Certificate of Authenticity from Gibson Memphis.
