yea, I probably would not screw with the sunburst one, but I'd be tempted on the one that was refinished as the value has already been compromised from a vintage value pov.

 

but anyway, I always fancied the gold top es-295s with the bigsby's but, alas out of production now...

Ever refurbished?

 

Thank you. Everything is original except the finish. It was refinished by Nashville luthier Mark Piper, who once led the production of Benedetto guitars for Guild/Fender. All the parts were polished and detailed, and a perfect refret was done. It's a dream to play.

I do have a short video, although to be fair, YouTube compression butchers the sound. In person it's much richer and dynamic.

 

Nevertheless:

Wow, sounds and looks absolutely beautiful. Nice playing as well. Say, has anybody ever told you that you look an awful lot like Christopher Meloni? :-k
