HIGHLY FIGURED CARVED MAPLE TOP & CHAMBERED SOLID MAHOGANY BODY

ThIS Gibson CS Es-356 features an extremely beautifully figured Carved Maple top.

Maple is a very hard type of wood with good tonal qualities and great sustain. It also helps to brighten the sound of the instrument so is a great pairing with Chambered mahogany body as mahogany has a slightly darker sound.

 

NITROCELLULOSE LACQUER

The Gibson CS Es-356 features a stunning Gloss Nitro finish.

Nitro finishes age in a very different way to the modern Poly Finishes. They also resonate differently.

As nitro ages it cracks which is often from expanding and shrinking during change of temperature.

This guitar will continue to age as you play it and make it your own!

EBONY FRETBOARD

The rich, dark colour of the Ebony fretboard beautifully compliments the flamed maple top on the ES-356. Ebony produces a slightly brighter tone compared to Rosewood which pairs nicely with the '57 Classic's to create a great bluesy tone that cuts through the mix.

 

GIBSON '57 CLASSIC HUMBUCKERS

Introduced in 1990, the '57 Classic provides warm, full tone with a balanced response, packing that classic Gibson PAF humbucker crunch. They are made to the exact same specs as the original PAFs, including Alnico II magnets, nickel-plated pole pieces, nickel slugs, maple spacers, and vintage-style, two-conductor braided wiring.

HIGH GRADE INTERNAL COMPONENTS

All of the internal components in the ES-356 are top of the range to make sure that your guitar plays and sounds as good as it looks!
