For nearly a decade, Epiphone and Joe Bonamassa have worked together to make stunning recreations of Joe’s favorite vintage guitars that anyone can afford. This time, the new Ltd. Ed. Joe Bonamassa ES-355 Standard Outfit is modeled after Joe’s personal ES-355 hollowbody archtop built by the Gibson Custom Shop for his Grammy nominated tribute show honoring the “Kings” of the Blues.
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. The Mahogany neck has 24.75” scale with a SlimTaper™-D profile with 22 medium jumbo frets along with an Ebony fingerboard with pearloid block inlays and Graphtech® Nubone™ nut. 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 Epiphone Ltd. Ed. “Amos” Korina Flying “V” Outfit. 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.
