2015 Gibson Memphis ES-355 VOS Limited in a unique new finish: Olive Drab Green that adds alternative style to traditional Pearloid Block inlays and VOS nickel hardware, with juicy 57 Classic Pickup tone, period-correct features & Bigsby vibrato!
This amazing ES-355 starts with a triple laminate Maple body & top wood with a one piece, mahogany neck with a bound Richlite fretboard with Pearloid block inlays & carved to a “slim taper” profile for ultra-comfort. 57 Classic pickups coupled with these tone woods, provide an amazing deep, warm and shimmering tone that will cover any genre from jazz, country, fusion and rock. Hardware is treated with VOS aging & compliments the Olive Drab Green finish in a very un-assuming way. Also comes with Grover Milk Bottle Rotomatic Tuners, multi-Ply binding on top, back & headstock and a bound pickguard. Included are a Gibson Custom Shop hardshell case & a Certificate of Authenticity.
