Epiphone Bonamassa ES-355 Limited (Sold Out!) Edition –

This is basically brand-new & still has stickers on the pickups!  Comes with the original Bonamassa hard case that still has protective plastic on the handle.

This guitar seems to have been damaged at the factory and it was sold to me as B-stock.  I am a (now retired) professional guitar tech and I repaired the neck/fretboard crack using Titebond II glue.

That repair was done a year and a half ago and has remained stable.  The guitar has been strung and tuned ever since and holds tuning as it should.   I would consider the repair as permanent, though I am not great at paint/refinishing and the repair is a bit visible (see photos in gallery).

The guitar has been played occasionally over the months with a total play time I would estimate at under five hours.   it truly sounds and plays awesome – but is a bit on the heavy side.
