Vintage ES-295 "Les Paul" tailpiece


Recommended Posts

I've noticed a lot of similarities between the vintage Gibson ES-175D and the ES-295. Aside from the obvious gold finish of the 295 and creme plastic parts, the only other difference I've found is with the bridge/tailpiece. I realize the tailpiece on the 295 is the same that was used on the early goldtop Les Paul models, while the 175 uses the more conventional type used on many of Gibson's other archtops. Can anyone tell me the benefit to the Les Paul type of tailpiece?
