Description & Specs

This product is in amazing, like new condition showing only small signs of wear from use as a demo model on our showroom floor.
From Epiphone:

The Ltd. Ed. Joe Bonamassa ES-355 Standard Outfit is Epiphone's sixth Signature model with GRAMMY nominated blues legend and expect vintage collector Joe Bonamassa. Featuring the classic ES-355 semi-hollowbody archtop profile with an Ebony finish, gold hardware, ProBuckerTM humbuckers, Mallory Capacitors, a Bigsby B7 Vibrato and Vibramate String Spoiler, Custom Hard Case, and Hand-Signed Certificate of Authenticity.

For nearly a decade, Epiphone and Joe Bonamassa have worked together to make stunning recreations of Joe's favorite rare vintage guitars that anyone can afford. The new Ltd. Ed. Joe Bonamassa ES-355 Standard Outfit is modeled after Joe's "3 Kings Tour" semi-hollowbody archtop that was originally honored by the Gibson Custom Shop.

"I have always loved the look and sound of black 355 guitars," said Bonamassa. "Epiphone once again has masterfully re-created a guitar initially built for me by the Gibson Custom shop that I used on my Live at The Greek Theater DVD at a price point that is totally affordable for players and collectors of great ES guitars. Thank you once again it is an honor as always."

The new Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Joe Bonamassa ES-355 Standard Outfit has a 3-ply Maple/Poplar/Maple top and body with a beautiful Ebony finish adorned with multi-layer white & black binding on the top, back, and on the Sloped Dovewing headstock. The Mahogany neck has 24.75" scale with a SlimTaper-D profile with 22 medium jumbo frets. The Ebony fingerboard has pearloid block inlays and a 1.68" Graphtech Nubone nut that is as hard as a traditional bone nut but longer lasting. The headstock has the "Epiphone" logo in Pearloid and the back of the headstock has a "Joe Bonamassa" signature reproduced in gold silkprint along with a "2018" Limited Edition logo. The tortoise shell-inspired pickguard has multi-layer binding and a metal "E" logo.

The Ltd. Ed. Joe Bonamassa ES-355 Standard Outfit is powered by critically acclaimed ProBuckerTM humbuckers with gold covers and Alnico II magnets, the same pickups Joe chose for his Ltd. Ed. "Amos" Korina Flying "V" Outfit. The neck position has a ProBucker 2 and the bridge position has a ProBucker 3 that is slightly overwound to emulate the tone of 1950s-era hand wound "PAF style" humbuckers. Controls for each pickup's Volume and Tone come with Black "Top Hat" knobs with metal pointers and include world-class Mallory 150 Capacitors along with a Switchcraft 3-Way Pickup Selector with an Amber Toggle Cap.

Like all Epiphones, Joe Bonamassa's Signature Ltd. Ed. ES-355 features rock solid hardware including a gold ABR-1 LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and a Bigsby B7 Vibrato tailpiece with a Vibramate String Spoiler for quick string changes. Tuning is fast and accurate with Grover Rotomatic machine heads with an 18:1 tuning ratio. A stylish vintage-inspired hard case is included with Bonamassa's logo and Nerdville, CA in classic Army-style typeface along with a hand-signed Certificate of Authenticity.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days.
