Entering into production in 1958, the Gibson ES-355 began as a higher-end 335, a compromise between hollow- and solid-body models. Seeking the warm, open tone of hollow-body guitars without the feedback, the semi-hollow body was created using a solid center block with open chambers, or "wings", on either side. This unique design produced a new sound all its own that remains extremely popular to this day. "Hey Chuck, you know that new sound you're looking for?" Well, this is it.
