Gibson Custom Shop Murphy Lab '59 ES-355 Sixties Cherry Bigsby Heavy Aged
Beautiful Gibson Murphy Lab ES-355, slightly inspired by Noel Gallagher's guitar!
Together with Gibson we have joined forces for a unique selection of Murphy Lab guitars that are only available at Dijkmans Music. This also applies to this special ES-355 in Sixties Cherry.
This Gibson Murphy Lab '59 ES-355 with Bigsby bridge is very special and reminiscent of Noel Gallagher. The ES-355 model was introduced by Gibson in 1958 as the flagship in the ES series. With its ebony fingerboard, gold hardware and characteristic inlays, this Murphy flawlessly captures the essence of a true '59. This example has a stylish Sixties Cherry finish with Heavy Murphy Aging. This makes this ES-355 look and feel like a guitar that has been played for many years. A real performance guitar!
In terms of sound, this Gibson Murphy Lab ES-355 has everything you would expect from a Gibson Hollowbody of this caliber. The neck pickup is perfect for blues and jazz; deep and warm, with a nice woody sound and a silky high end. On the other hand, the bridge pickup, with its brighter, open sound, is an ideal tool for pop, rock and even country. This combination of warm and bright sounds also makes this ES-355 a guitar with which you can find your way in any context. This beautiful Gibson Custom Shop Murphy Lab ES-355 comes with a luxurious Lifton Hardcase.
