I ordered an ES-355 (via a USA dealer) direct from the Gibson custom shop and can tell you it is one of the most immaculately finished guitars I have ever seen and it plays really well out of the box. The model I went for has a bigsby tremolo and the gold hard-ware gleams with pure class, as does the rich antique red finish (not like that insipid pale cherry stain that production line 335s now have). Lovely smooth cool ebony fingerboard and the block inlays are beautiful. Soundwise the guitar's… Read Full Review

All of the laquered areas that were mottled were smoothed with down carefully with 'T' cut polish, then finished off with the supplied Gibson polish. This included the neck sides, headstock edges and join areas. The frets were polished with mild metal… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/01/2007 by Budd (5 reviews written)

We appear to get Gibson rejects in this country at the high end, similar Lucille and Epiphones seen at the supplier at the same time had a better finish than the custom ones so do not feel dissapointed that they are a rarity in this country, we are better off without them if they are being produced like this. It has taken three years to eventually get to see a fairly decent one sent over to this country and when we did it fell short of expectation. The Epiphone Sheraton/Gibson 335/ Lucille… Read Full Review
