Overview

Gibson ES-295 Model Arch Top Hollow Body Electric Guitar (1954)
The ES-295 has been long been one of the most iconic guitars of the 1950s. The model is equipped with double P-90 pickups with cream plastic "dog ear" covers and the classic four-knob tone/volume control array with amber "hatbox" knobs and switch tip. The top is triple-bound; the back and fingerboard are single-bound. The 19-fret rosewood fingerboard has double parallelogram inlays, and the headstock has a pearl crown and "Gibson" inlay. Made famous by Scotty Moore, who played for Elvis Presley, the 295 is a versatile stage guitar with a gleaming, gold lacquer finish and a floral pickguard design.

Gibson built a total of 1,770 examples of this model between 1952 and 1958, and they remain one of the company's most recognizable 1950s classics. In rock'n'roll history the ES-295 is revered as the guitar played by Scotty Moore on the earliest Elvis Sun records, and thus often considered the ultimate Rockabilly guitar.
