We present an original 1955 Gibson ES-225T in its original Sunburst finish. Made in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
This Gibson hollow body is all original and 100% complete, except for new cream buttons on the original tuners. It is very common to replace these from that period, because they can shrink over time.
This Gibson ES-225T is a single cutaway thin body, one P-90 pickup and a combination trapeze tailpiece/bridge (like early Gibson Les Paul models). Overall this guitar is in excellent and condition and even comes with original hang tags. It has been well cared for over the years and it has some minor finish wear, on the back of the neck and a few dings, scratches and other cosmetic play wear. The frets are original and there is plenty of life left. Good strong 57 mahogany neck with dark rosewood fingerboard and pearl dots. The single P-90 pickup in the middle position feeds to a single volume and tone control with the output jack on the side. Just a stunning hollow body that sounds great.
The pickup and the electronics/wiring are untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickup. All original and correct.
Comes complete with its original and rare brown hardshell case. Latches and handle are in perfect working order.
