A Faithful Tribute to a Live Music Icon and a Legendary Guitarist
Gibson Custom Shop is the pinnacle of craftsmanship, quality, and sound excellence. Each instrument celebrates Gibson's legacy through accuracy, authenticity, and attention to detail.

“Ladies and gentlemen…how about a nice, warm round of applause to welcome the world’s greatest blues singer, the King of the Blues, B.B. King!"

Those words introduce what many music lovers feel is one of the best live albums ever recorded. The Gibson Custom Shop is proud to commemorate this landmark album and the legendary artist behind it with the B.B. King “Live at the Regal” ES-335. It recreates the unique 1959 ES-335 that B.B. used at the time, which was custom-ordered with an Argentine Grey sunburst finish, a Bigsby® vibrato, and a Varitone switch. It also features Grover® "Milk Bottle" Rotomatic® tuners, pearl dots to cover the stop bar holes, and nitrocellulose dot inlays on the rosewood fretboard. The hardware and nitrocellulose lacquer finish has been expertly aged by the Murphy Lab. Only 100 of these very special guitars have been handcrafted by the expert luthiers and craftspeople of the Gibson Custom Shop in Nashville, Tennessee. A Custom Shop Lifton™ hardshell case and certificate of authenticity are also included.
