Nashville, TN (December 6, 2018) — Epiphone, the leader in affordable professional instruments proudly presents the new Ltd. Ed. Joe Bonamassa ES-355 Standard Outfit, the sixth Signature model with GRAMMY nominated blues legend and expert vintage collector Joe Bonamassa.

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 Three Kings Tour honoring B.B. King, Freddie King, and Albert King.
“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. 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 ProBucker 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.
