The Epiphone Ltd Ed Joe Bonamassa ES-355 Standard Outfit in Ebony is a celebration of the blues legend and guitar connoisseur's Gibson Custom Shop ES-355 semi-hollowbody archtop. Completed in a cool ebony finish with gold hardware throughout to establish a sophisticated aesthetic, it is every bit as awesome as you'd expect it to be. Boasting enhancements across the board from headstock to end pin, the Joe Bonamassa ES-355 is setup to hit the stage with straight out of the box. Every model is supplied with a unique custom hard case and hand-signed certificate of authenticity to complete a truly excellent package.

Classic ES-355 semi-hollowbody archtop

The close to a decade long collaboration between Epiphone and Joe Bonamassa continues in breathless fashion with the ES-355 Standard Outfit. Taking its cue from the modern-day guitar hero's own model, which was built to accompany Bonamassa on his Three Kings Tour honouring B.B. King, Freddie King, and Albert King.

Endowed with a slender semi-hollowbody built using 3-ply maple/poplar/maple throughout the body, the ES-355 produces a rich and resonant character that is the stuff dreams are made of. The ebony finish is paired with 7-layer binding around the body top and 5-layer binding on the back, which doesn't even scratch the surface with regard to the meticulous attention to detail shown by the team at Epiphone.

Elegant yet robust neck

Connected to the body is a sturdy mahogany neck, which is fitted using a set-neck joint that is glued-in for increased stability and transient response. Carved to the elegant slimtaper D-profile, the neck sits sweetly in the hand and allows you to sweep seamlessly along the generous 24.75-inch scale length. Married to the neck is a luxurious ebony fingerboard, which is home to 22 medium-jumbo frets that are adorned with pearloid block position inlays to guide you in style. The 12-inch fingerboard radius promotes clean playing and promotes fearless players who like to tear through licks and riffs with abandon.

The fun continues along to the headstock, not before passing the 1.68-inch Graphtech Nubone nut, which is as solid as traditional bone and greater endurance. The Epiphone "sloped dovewing" headstock is home to Grover Rotomatic tuning machines with impressive 18:1 gear ratio, upholding tuning integrity with absolute precision for superb consistency. The headstock is adorned with the Epiphone logo in pearloid, whilst the back of the headstock has a "Joe Bonamassa" signature reproduced in elegant gold silk print with a "2018" limited edition logo. The truss rod even bears a cheeky "Bonamassa" silk print in white.

Shining ProBuckersTM

The Limited-Edition Joe Bonamassa ES-355 Standard Outfit is home to a pair of critically acclaimed ProBuckerTM humbuckers complete with gold covers. Powered by Alnico II magnets, you'll find a ProBucker 2 in the neck position and a ProBucker 3 in the bridge position. Switching between the two is done with flawless accuracy thanks to the Switchcraft 3-way pickup selector switch with amber toggle cap. Control for each pickup comes in the form of Black "Top Hat" knobs with metal pointers, which include world-renowned Mallory 150 capacitors for the smoothest attenuation of your tone.

Beautiful Bigsby

The Joe Bonamassa ES-355 is home to the rock solid ABR-1 LockTone tune-o-matic bridge and a Bigsby B7 vibrato tailpiece with a Vibramate String Spoiler for rapid fire string changes - you can tell this is a gigging guitarist's instrument. Each string is anchored securely to optimise intonation and sustain for imperious tone.
