Product Description

Epiphone is proud to announce what many guitarists think of as the ultimate player's axe, the Limited 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 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 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.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Blemished? What blemish?"
Overall: What a great deal for $529! I can't find the problem. There are some swirls in the finish that might be why it's labelled "blemished". Everyone who looks at this guitar can't figure out what is supposed to be the blemish. All the better for me. I like this body shape. It's comfortable when sitting and playing for long periods of time - like recording. This feels and sounds very similar to the Epiphone Dot I usually use. I was turned on by the color, but fell in love with how it sounds. It seems a bit more mellower with richer bass end without being muddy than my Dot. The Bigsby looks great and works fine. Expect the treble strings to go out of tune if you use it even a moderate amount. Typical for Bigsbys. The slim-taper neck feels more full than the Dot. It's so beautiful in my Jam Lab.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Epiphone es-355"
Overall: Very happy overall with this guitar! I'm sure it will benefit from a better setup and a replacement of the plastic nut but the sound right out of the box is pretty impressive! The humbuckers sound great and for 699 this is REALLY going to be tough to beat!Dealing with zzsounds was totally painless, shipping was fast and they have excellent payment plans!

What Our Customers Are Saying About zZounds "zZounds has proven to me that they have the best customer service and support of any online music store. The first amplifier I received was having some issues. Obviously not zZounds' fault. Could have been faulty from the manufacturer or damaged in shipping. Using the expedited return option I had the replacement amp sitting at my door in less than 48 hours after calling them about it. Just in time for a block of studio time I had set up. zZounds seriously came to the rescue and saved the day on this one." - customer on October 28, 2014
