1968 Gibson ES-355 Rare Mono Cherry - All Original
100% All original Super Rare Mono Electronics (no Stereo or Varitone) with factory tailpiece! A dynamite player with a super cool vintage vibe in very good vintage condition! The cherry finish has a nice patina & the original Pat No. pickups sound excellent!
In very good vintage condition for its age, but does show signs of wear, various nicks, chips, dents & dings; surface scratches particularly on the bottom edge with weather checking & some finish wear. There is significant wear around the neck heel as it looks like it may have been from a large strap rubbing against it. There's a very small area in the Original Tortoise pickguard near the bridge pickup that is deteriorating a bit as these tend to do.
No Cracks, breaks or repairs.
