WOW! When this instrument originally arrived at Wildwood, we couldn't BELIEVE it was a vintage piece. It looked so clean, were convinced this was a reissue instrument, lovingly cared for. To say this is the cleanest vintage 295 we've seen would be the understatement of the century. Some light weather checking on the bass side of the guitar compliments a beautiful patina and factory gold hardware! This is a phenomenal example of a vintage '50s ES-295, not to mention an iconic piece of American history. Shades of Scotty Moore and the rock n' roll revolution that defined a generation can be found here in spades. It's an absolute honor to present this historic instrument to our exceptional customers!
