1962 GibsonES-355TDCSV – Cherry

We’re proudly showing off this sharply dressed 1962 Gibson ES-355TDCSV in its original Cherry red! The ES-355 was the equivalent of the Les Paul Custom; with similar appointments such as the ebony board with pearl block inlays, 7 ply binding, split diamond headstock, and gold hardware. This particular instrument is extremely well preserved, with it still maintaining its bright Cherry finish, showing hardly any weather checking, and only the original pickguard off-gassing. The gold hardware on the pickup covers shows patina and playwear, but the vibrola mechanism still looks great!
