Whether you're a Gibson enthusiast looking to add another beauty to the collection or a player who wants a top-of-the-line, versatile semi, the ES-355 Black Beauty 2018 is sure to satisfy.

Sleek Custom Attire Meets Classic ES Design
Decked out in sleek Custom attire, the ES-355 Black Beauty 2018 is adorned in a nitro lacquer ebony finish and multi-ply bindings over its semi-hollow laminated maple body. A weight-relieved centerblock allows for superb resonance and performance while classic mother-of-pearl block fretboard inlays and a split diamond headstock inlay cater to the signature Custom aesthetic.
Three Pickups in True "Black Beauty" Tradition
The "Black Beauty" Les Paul Custom models are famous for their three-pickup design, so holding true to tradition, this ES-355 Black Beauty 2018 also comes equipped with three vintage-inspired MHS humbuckers including a reverse-polarity middle pickup and a redesigned higher output bridge pickup. Featuring a modified Memphis Premiere Tone Circuit with Orange Drop capacitors and seven onboard pickup configurations, the ES-355 Black Beauty gives you an incredible array of classic tones and sonic variations right at your fingertips.
Premium Hardware Dressed in Gold
All-gold hardware completes the Custom vibe, and includes a set of precise Grover "Milk Bottle" Rotomatic tuners along with a traditional ABR-1 bridge/stopbar tailpiece combo.
