To anyone who follows the releases of the Gibson Custom Shop, this burgundy ES-355 should be well known. Of course, it is the limited tribute model for Chuck Berry - one of the highlights of the past year! The king and co-inventor of rock'n'roll played his original ES-355 from the 70s until his last steps in the duckwalk on stage. The replica was therefore also made as historically accurate as possible: Just like the original, you'll find a Maeastro tremolo, Grover tuners, the Varitone circuit and the thickened neck-to-headstock transition. The pickups used are 68 Alnico V Custombuckers. We dare to bet that the guitar therefore sounds at least as good as the original! In addition, there is a fantastic aging from the Murphy Lab, which gives the guitar real mojo. As collector's gadgets, the strictly limited to 100 copies model also comes with Chuck's typical captain's slider cap as well as a finger hook, with which the master could play his instrument in style on his back. The guitar is an absolute rarity that is actually not available at all at the moment. Therefore, we are even more pleased to be able to offer you the instrument in mint, virtually unplayed condition!
