1950 Gibson ES-295 12-String refinished in glitter gold

This is not the first time we show on Guitarz a vintage guitar refinished in heavy glitter by US company Marty Bell - remember the moon silver Jaguar?

This venerable 12-string ES-295 by Gibson Custom Shop got a new youth (as a Las Vegas strip dancer it seems) with enough shiny gold to please the wife of a Serbian warlord back in the days.

The ES-295 - roughly a ES-175 with P90S and a flowery scratchplate - was the favorite model of Scotty More, the guitarist of Elvis Presley - that would explain its tasteful new look. I love it!
