Comments This is an incredibly cool guitar. There aren’t a lot of ES-295′s around; they were supplanted by the ES-175, which is a very similar guitar but with humbuckers. As an excellent rockabilly guitar, the ES-295 was famously played by Scotty Moore in Elvis Presley’s band fronm 1952 to 1955. This example, while refinished long ago, is in good playable shape and is ready to rumble!
