On our latest visit to ATB Guitars, we took an all-gold 1953 Gibson ES-295 for a spin.

Unlike its contemporaries, this axe’s gold finish is well maintained. Cosmetically, the guitar has also undergone a few modifications, including re-fretting and mending of a body crack.

Learn about its history from ATB’s Mike Long, and check out how it sounds through an original blackface ’67 Fender Deluxe Reverb in the video above.

Stay tuned for a complete review of this vintage beauty, coming up soon.
