Are ES 355s still available through the Custom Shop?

Recommended Posts

The '59 & '63 reissues? Yes. They're made in Nashville and are the only true Custom Shop 335s.

The rest are made in Memphis and although they have a COA and a Custom Shop case, they're the equivalent of Gibson USA. It's evident by the Gibson USA serial number and "Made in USA" on the back of the headstock.

The question was about the 355, not the 335.

 

I do not believe that Gibson is making any 355's at this time.

I think he is speaking of the ES-355, previously played by BB King before Lucille, and a custom shop model played by A. Lifeson of Rush. I don't think this model is currently produced, including the Alex Lifeson model which was showcased about 2-3 years ago on this ever changing website. It was a production model up until 1982, when it was discontinued.
