This is a beautifully flamed ES-355, plays beautifully and sounds fantastic. This is the second one of these we've had this year, and they've both been killer guitars.
The MHS II pickups are supposedly based on 1960s Gibson patent number humbuckers and they sound very true to this. Unlike the mid to late '60s skinny necked Gibsons, this has the standard 1 11/16" nut that most prefer.
This guitar was originally sold as a demo model direct from Gibson and the included COA reflects this. Honestly, except for a few almost unnoticeable finish defects, it would be in mint condition. I tried to capture the worst, which is a small amount of dye bleed in the finish into the binding lacquer on each side of the headstock. The most important things, playability and tone, are perfect.
Weight - 7 lbs 10 oz.
The original hardshell case, COA, and an abundance of case candy are all included.
