Description

Gibson Historic (Gold Bullion) ES295 (1999 model)
Includes original hard case and tags
serial: 91279010

The original ES-295 was made between 1952-1959, it was an ES-175 style guitar with a beautiful gold top. This guitar was around at the birth of rock and roll, and Scotty Moore (Elvis Preseley) was one of the guitarists of that era who played an ES-295. Most of us weren’t around in 1952 to get an original ES-295 so Gibson kindly reissued the ES-295 as a Custom Shop model capturing the essence of the 1952 ES-295.

The reissued ES-295s were also available in the 1990s as part of the Historic Collection – including one with a Bigsby tremolo tailpiece (from 1998-2000). This is an extremely rare mint condition used 1999 ES295 with a Bigspy tailpiece, P90 finished in Bullion Gold.
