The King of Semi-HollowsWildwoodians, we are proud to present the king of the semi-hollow kingdom, the Custom Shop 1959 ES-355 reissue. Decked out with regal appointments like a stately ebony fretboard with authentic '50s block inlays, a split-diamond headstock, and gold hardware, the '59 ES-355 cuts an imposing figure. It's also an absolute sonic titan. A solid maple centerblock and a solid mahogany neck give it superior resonance and fullness, and two Alnico III Custombuckers deliver authentic old-school PAF tones. And, its authentic '59 neck profile and medium jumbo frets make it an absolute joy to play. We invite you to take a 355 for a ride and experience its myriad aesthetic and sonic delights!
