"955 Gibson ES-295… Scotty Moore anyone? This a guitar that Danny Gatton turned me on to when I was just 12 years old. He had a similar model that was rumored to be Scotty Moore’s original Elvis guitar from back in the Sun Record days. These guitars have a great sound, very bright and open. Think of it as a gold ES-175. This model started in 1952 and was discontinued (the reissued them in the 90?s) in late 1959. Sadly most of the PAF equipped ES-295 have been pillaged for parts. The pickups and rings alone are worth more than the whole guitar itself… What a crazy world we live in," says Joe Bonamassa, on his [website](http://jbonamassa.com/joes-guitar-of-the-week/guitar-of-the-week-33-955-gibson-es-295/).more
