1954 GibsonES-295 – Gold

Essentially an all gold Les Paul’s ES cousin, check out this 1954 Gibson ES-295 in Gold! The model is described by Gibson as a true “royal” instrument in their catalog and we could not agree more. The entire body, neck, and headstock is painted gold with gold plated appointments. We particularly love this floral design on the pickguard painted in, you guessed it, gold. As if the gilded design of this guitar wasn’t enough, this guitar delivers on tone and action as well. You get the action, sustain, and power of a solid electric guitar in the form of a larger acoustic style body with a luxurious look.
