The new guitar sports the iconic ES-355 semi-hollow body archtop profile and is fitted with a three-ply maple/poplar/maple top and body in an ebony finish with gilded hardware, complete with multi-layer white and black binding. The mahogany neck has a slim taper, D-profile and is crafted with perloid block inlays, with an option available for Bonamassa’s signature to be engraved.
The guitarist’s signature blues tone will be produced largely by a pair of Alnico II ProBuckers, with a ProBucker 2 in the neck and a ProBucker 3 in the bridge. A classic Bigsby B7 Vibrato and Vibramate String Spoiler gives the guitar the classic hollow body feel. A hand-signed certificate of authenticity tops off the package.
