Got a Sweet Little Angel - One for the King! Special order Left Handed ES-355 for a BB King fan in Japan. This guitar has been on order from the Nashville Custom Division for over 6 months. The wait has surely been worth it!

I had to pull a lot of strings to get this done: the ltd edition righty Memphis ES-355 doesn't even have a Varitone switch. This guitar has the Varitone switch and EBONY fretboard, which Gibson doesn't even use any longer(they use Richlite). This one is really special!

Body/Hardware:

Laminated plain maple top, back and rims
Multi-ply binding on top & back
Adjustable wide-travel Bridge
Maestro Long vibrola tailpiece
Black Gloss finish
Gold Hardware
‘57 Classic Pickups
Speed knobs
Dark Tortoise Pickguard
Varitone Switch

Neck & Headstock:

3-piece maple neck
22 fret EBONY fingerboard
Pearl block inlays
Single-ply white binding
