Epiphone is proud to announce what many guitarists think of as the ultimate player's axe, the Ltd. Edition ES-355. The ES-355 is one of the most iconic guitar designs in rock and Epiphone has brought it back in all its glory in three beautiful finishes--Alpine White, Ebony, and classic Cherry.
The ES-355 Story
When it was first introduced in 1958, the ES-355 was the world's first thinline archtop semi-electric guitar, a bold new design that combined the cutting, bell-like sustain of a solid body with the darker, complex tones of an archtop. The ES-355 also incorporated the humbucker pickup, a new design created by famed Gibson pickup expert Seth Lover. Seth’s design eliminated the ‘hum’ found in single coil pickups and his invention quickly become legendary among guitar players. Many think of the ES-355 as one of the best electrics ever made and it can be found in the collection of all discriminating guitarists including B.B. King, Keith Richards, Jorma Kaukonen, Chuck Berry, and Noel Gallagher. Now with the Ltd. ES-355, you can have one in your collection, too.
