Out of twenty eight models Gibson Memphis has introduced for 2015, several top spots belong to the models dedicated to the 1950s. As the most affordable `50s model, 1952 ES-295 VOS is also a Limited Run model. Back in 1952, Gibson has introduced their first solid bodied guitar, and humbucker-powered semi-hollows were nowhere in sight. Thus, all of the models of the Electric Spanish range were completely hollow (as is this model) and equipped with single-coil P-90s. As all Gibson`s historic replicas do, this luxurious 295 recreates the tone, looks and feel of the original model with a stunning level of fidelity and quality. Fully hollow and single-cut ES body of this model is made completely of maple and poplar (three-ply maple/poplar/maple laminates are used), and is paired with a mahogany neck. Bridge section is flanked by a pair of elegant "f" holes and features the vintage-styled wraparound tailpiece anchored near the strap pin. MHS P-90s bring the 50s tone in its full glory, featuring the classic Gibson controls unit (vol/vol/tone/tone/3-way toggle pickup switch). Mahogany neck is reinforced with the historic truss rod which makes a big comeback this year, and offers the accurate historic soft C profile in the back. 19 frets with split parallelogram inlays, creme binding and 1.7" wide nylon nut are featured on the one-piece rosewood fingerboard. Vintage Kluson tuners with 15:1 ratio are installed on the classic Gibson headstock.
