1990 Gibson ES-295 Hollowbody Guitar Bullion Gold, Near-Mint w/ Bigsby, Case


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 1990 Gibson ES-295 in near-mint, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original brown tolex Gibson USA hardshell case. One of sparingly few ES-295s made in the early '90s, this upscale model is indelibly linked to Elvis' guitarist Scotty Moore. Bigsby-equipped from the factory, the ES-295 is finished head-to-toe in Bullion Gold, matching Gibson's Goldtop Les Pauls of the '50s.

Produced in an increasingly celebrated era of Gibson production, this ES-295 features a fully hollow maple body paired with a one-piece mahogany neck and bound rosewood fingerboard. Befitting the all-maple body, the guitar has an articulate, snappy treble response, with a warm, broad tonal profile thanks to the fully hollow construction. The pair of P-100 single coils have a glassy treble snap and sweet, midrange-forward growl. Capturing a P-90's tonal profile yet with a second coil to eliminate hum, these pickups are responsive to picking dynamics and applicable to a broad range of genres, handling complex chord passages and rich overdriven grit with equal ease. The instrument weighs 8lbs 7oz, strung with 11-49 roundwound strings and professionally setup with low action and accurate intonation here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar.

The gloss Bullion Gold nitro lacquer finish is exceedingly clean, with a touch of lacquer checking adjacent to the heel cap, input jack and rear strap button, and just a few microscopic marks and faint finish scratches in the clear coat on the body as a whole. The gloss finish on the neck profile is flawless.
