Gibson ES 295 Hollow Body

via this auction where you'll find more pics.

"All original 1952 Gibson ES 295 Hollow Body Electric Guitar ( serial # A12368 ) with its original Brown, Pink-lined Hardshell case. This instrument is in Very Good to Excellent condition. This guitar plays and sounds superb with nice fat and powerful P 90 Pickups, excellent action and a neck that is perfectly straight. It appears that this piece might have been in storage for quite some time as both case and instrument have an odor similar to that of a closet that has been closed for a long period of time. In addition, the fretboard and frets do not show significant signs of ware or extensive play time. This piece has been thoroughly examined and blacklighted and shows no signs of breaks, routing, repairs, refretting, touchups or refinishing. The Gold finish does show quite a bit of lacquer checking throughout, some slight discoloration on the back of the neck and a few small dings, dents and scratches but in spite of the aforementioned, this piece is very clean for its age and, a stunning example of this classic guitar..."
