Overview

This Gibson CS-356 Electric Guitar has an elegant and comfortable scaled-down ES double cutaway body with a carved top made of maple and a tonally carved mahogany back, centerblock, and sides. The five-piece maple neck has a 1960s slim taper profile that is ultra-fast and fully accessible.

The guitar's 22-fret ebony fretboard is bound and adorned with mother-of-pearl block inlays. The Gibson CS-356 is loaded with Classic '57 humbucker pickups with Alnico II magnets, giving you the sound that defined the music of the late '50s. Push/pull tone controls offer coil-tapping and series/parallel switching for added tone-shaping.

All the hardware on this beauty is brilliant gold, including the Grover tuners, the ABR bridge and Bigsby tailpiece. Comes with a hardshell guitar case and certificate of authenticity.
