Gibson is vying to make some of its standout guitars even more standout, as a total of 11 new electric guitars are unveiled in unique colorways. The range includes silver and gold sparkle ES-355s as well as Murphy Lab aged 1957 Les Paul Junior reissues, ’64 ES-335s and SGs, and an Explorer and Flying V.

Standing front and center is its reissue of the 1959 ES-355, which now boasts silver and gold sparkle heavy flake gloss finishes (see the bank account-bothering image above). Adding further glitzy luxury are diamond f-holes and a split diamond inlay on its headstock.
