Gibson Custom Shop CS356 Chambered Vintage Sunburst Electric Guitar

Classic Gibson Custom appointments adorn the Gibson Custom Shop’s CS-356 Figured Top model. While visually similar to Gibson Custom’s ES™ models, the CS-356 is constructed with carved and chambered solid woods, including a stunning figured maple top, for a unique sound all its own that combines elements of archtop, Les Paul™, and semi-hollowbody tones in a deceptive ES-style package. The compact body shape is well balanced and resists feedback while remaining extremely resonant. The sound is captured by a pair of ’57 Classic™ humbucking pickups. The Gibson Custom CS-356 Figured Top is the perfect pairing of figured beauty and solid tones.

We've added the last picture to show the guitar in a natural in-door environment.
