Gibson Peghead

The Golden Era of the Gibson Thinlines

ES-355s are the top of the semi-hollow line. Cherry finish has always been the standard, though other colors do exist. They have usually included either a Bigsby or a Gibson tremolo unit and a Stereo Varitone, though again, variations do occur, like A31526 that is mono, no varitone. Ebony fingerboard with large block inlays and that cool bound, custom-style peghead were standard.
