Overview

Epiphone proudly presents the Ltd. Ed. ES-295 Premium, one of the most iconic guitars in rock history now in Musician's Friend exclusive color finishes and featuring Gibson USA Dogear P-90 pickups.

The original ES-295 archtop was first introduced in 1952 as a hollowbody companion to the modern Goldtop Les Paul, which was then catching on across the country. That ™52 ES-295 full body archtop originally came in a stunning Metallic Gold finish, cream P-90 œdogear style pickups, and an ornate pickguard that was easily recognized on stage. But the ES-295 really caught on when Scotty Moore, a 20-year old guitarist from Memphis, accompanied Elvis Presley on his first nationally televised appearances in 1956. From then on, the ES-295 was-- for many kids discovering rock-and-roll --the ultimate electric guitar for stirring up trouble.

With a tone that could be biting one minute and smooth the next, the ES-295 was the one œbox a pro could take to any show or any session and make an impression. Now Epiphone”the original House of Stathopoulo and every hardcore guitarist' favorite archtop maker--brings you the new Ltd. Ed. ES-295 Premium powered by the same original Gibson USA Dogear P-90 pickups.

Premium Rock
The Epiphone ES-295 Premium features a maple body with a maple top finished with aged-style lacquer. The top has 3-layer Ivory/Black/Ivory binding while the body back and fingerboard have single layer Ivory binding. The Cream pickguard is just like the original with the same classic floral graphic. The Hard maple neck has a comfortable and easy to play "1960's" SlimTaper D profile and is hand-set and glued to the body. The Rosewood fretboard has 20 medium jumbo frets, a 12 radius, pearloid Split "Parallelogram" inlays, and a 1.68 nut. The Sloped Dovewing headstock is the same profile seen on all of Epiphone' classic guitars from the '60s and features a pearloid "Epiphone" logo and "Crown" inlay. The 2-layer black/white truss rod cover has œES-295 Premium in white.

World Class Gibson USA Dogear P-90 Pickups
The Ltd. Ed. ES-295 Premium is powered by two Gibson USA Dogear P-90 pickups. For many guitar aficionados, there' no better single coil pickup than a P-90, which was Mr. Les Paul' first choice for his debut solid body guitar, the Les Paul. For the Epiphone ES-295 Premium, the rhythm position has a Gibson USA Dogear P-90R and the lead position has a Gibson USA Dogear P-90T wound slightly hotter for soloing. Each pickup has their own volume and tone control topped with iconic Gold œSpeed knobs with metal pointers. And each pickup is activated via a high quality Epiphone 3-position toggle switch.

Epiphone Rock Solid Hardware
The new Ltd. Ed. ES-295 Premium like all Epiphones carries superb rock-solid Epiphone hardware including a "Pinned" Rosewood bridge with adjustable Tune-o-matic saddles and a rock-and-roll-approved Bigsby B70 Vibrato tailpiece. For the Metallic Gold finish, the ES-295 Premium features nickel hardware while the Walnut and Wine Red finishes have gold hardware. Tuning is fast and easy with Epiphone Deluxe machine heads with a pro-level 18:1 tuning ratio. And all great Epiphones carry the House of Stathopoulo' heavy duty ¼ rim mounted output jack. And to top it off, the ES-295 Premium is tuned up at the factory with industry renown D'Addario 10-46 strings.

        Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition ES-295 Hollow Body Electric Guitar:

        The action was high. The Guitar Center lowered the action and did not charge me. There is a problem with the strings sticking in the nut. The G string is especially bad. Turn the tuner almost a complete revolution then the string pops. The instrument is well made and the tone is excellent. Maybe the Guitar Center would fix the sticking strings?
