1980 Gibson guitar, bass and banjo catalogue, page 34
Guitars and Parts for Sale
Listed at $1349 (US price, July 1980), or $1299 for the non-varitone ES-355TDS/79. The 355 had been Gibson's high end ES-series guitar for over two decades, but at the time this catalogue was printed, it was already very close to the end. This was the final US catalogue appearance, and they were last included in price lists in 1981.
