NGD Epiphone ES-355

Just picked up one of these...

Added the scratchplate, but otherwise it's stock. Plays pretty well, might swap the Bigsby for a Maestro Vibrola...
Been a long time fan of Alex Lifeson, and couldn't afford the Gibson Signature 355.

Re: NGD Epiphone ES-355

Looks good man,
I saw Epi is doing a Dwight Yokum sig soon, that might be on my list. It looks like a Dave Grohl/Trini Lopez with a reverse headstock

Edit: nevermind $3600 list for an Epi

Re: NGD Epiphone ES-355

I like Epiphones style. They must love being able to put out the guitars the guys at the Gibson factory would love to be making.

Utterly gorgeous. Would love to blast one of those through a nice Rivera or something similar...

Re: NGD Epiphone ES-355

Just redressed the Epi


Had a Varitone from a 345 (from ebay)and a Vibrola style trem fitted by Mansons Guitars, looks very like the Lifeson model now!
