355 marking


Recommended Posts

There is a guy who posts on the “Les Paul Forum” in the “Other Gibsons” thread that worked at the Nashville factory. His name is Strings Jr and his thread is “Where are they now?” He likely knows the employee with those initials & has answered many people with similar questions. It’s an interesting read!


P.S. I had to go back 10 pages to find it. The last post was June 29,2022.

At Grog's suggestion, I reached out to the member on the Les Paul forum. His response:


......More than likely, at some point in the production process before neck fit, it was decided that this "body" would become a 335 instead of a 355. Another guess is the WC initials were possibly who signed off on the change. Again, just a guess.
