I am selling my CS-356. Great guitar. It sounds amazing! I am selling it because I have just never been able to get used to the neck. I like a big chuncky neck and this guitar has a modern feeling slim taper neck. The neck is super smooth with rolled finger board edges; just a little to thin for me.

I have upgraded the electronics and the tuning keys. However, I will include the original wiring harness and tuning keys with the guitar.

There is some minor worming on the back of the guitar and a chip in the head stock. Nothing more than normal playing wear. The frets are in perfect condition. The guitar has not had any breaks or repairs. It has never been smoked around or played out. I'm not exactly sure what year the guitar is, but it is an early 2000's Gibson, so it has an ebony fret board, not the richlite that they have switched over to in more recent years.

I will consider trades for: Gibson Custom Shop led Paul Junior, Gibson 330 335 or 345 with a 50 style neck (plus cash), a solid wood 1x12 extension cab (plus cash) or a low wattage handwired combo tube amp (plus cash). All Reasonable offers will be considered. I will only meet in a mutually agreed upon public place and any monitary transactions must be in cash.

The Gibson Custom Shop CS-356 Figured Top Electric Guitar is not only a versatile tone machine, it's also a musical dream come true.

Since the first semi-hollow ES-335 was released in 1958, Gibson has had the ultimate goal of producing a semi-hollow guitar whose back, center block, and rims would be carved from one piece of wood. In 2001, the Custom Shop realized that dream with the introduction of the CS-336, a guitar whose warm, woody sound and scaled-down body size are the perfect combination of comfort and tone.

With the introduction of the CS-356, a guitar with the same deep tone and comfortable feel but with an extended array of upscale appointments, the Custom Shop has created a big brother for the CS-336.

It features a luxurious AAA figured, book-matched maple top; single-piece solid mahogany back, sides, and center block; slim-taper, one-piece mahogany neck; glassy-smooth, 22-fret Ebony fingerboard; rich pearl block inlays; '57 Classic humbuckers; and stopbar tailpiece. The neck and body are fully bound, and all hardware is gold finished for a classy and sophisticated appearance. Includes case.
