1959 Gibson ES-125

FON S785-27. With no repairs, perfect original frets, almost no finish-wear to mention, and an excellent set up, this 1959 Gibson ES-125 is a dreamy budget-minded archtop. It's P-90 sounds thick and meaty, and the guitar has bluesy growl that's hard not to fall in love with.

Completely original but for a set of correct modern replacement tuners and an added strap button in the heel. Bound 16" full-hollow laminate maple body, Mahogany neck, unbound Brazilian rosewood fingerboard with pearl dot inlays. Rosewood adjustable bridge, volume and tone wiring. Late 1959 neck profile, 1-11/16" nutwidth, 24.75" scale.

With newer hardshell case
