An unbelievably beautiful 1962 Gibson ES-355 in original Cherry finish with gold hardware! Most ES-355 we see come standard with a Stereo Varitone control, but this guitar sports a very desirable factory mono jack instead! This rare example also features a gold sideways vibrola, factory gold Grover tuners, and a stunning ebony fretboard with block pearl inlays. The two well balanced pickups sound absolutely fantastic, with a 7.40K in the bridge and 7.67K in the neck position. Starting in 1961 and continuing into 1962, Gibson started applying the Patent No. sticker on humbuckers instead of the fabled PAF sticker. This guitar retains it’s PAF sticker in the neck position, but the sticker on the bridge pickup has fallen off. Due to this time period, it’s safe to assume the bridge pickup is either a PAF or an early identical Patent No. pickup. The neck is a beautifully shaped C profile, and the frets are in fantastic shape. The guitar is amazingly resonate, and the action is set to make playing an absolute joy!

It weighs in at 8 lbs 3 oz, and comes with original Gibson hardshell case.
