Gibson Custom

Description

Classic, Gibson Custom appointments adorn this Limited-Edition CS-356 model guitar. It features a carved solid maple top with chambered solid mahogany back and sides. The result is deep archtop tones in a deceptive ES-style package. The compact body shape is well-balanced and resists feedback while remaining extremely resonant, amplified by a pair of singing ‘57 Classic humbuckers. In both beauty and brawn, the Gibson Custom CS-356 guitar reigns supreme.
