We present an original 1956 Gibson ES-125 in its original Sunburst finish. Made in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
The ES-125 has an adjustable intonate bridge and trapeze tailpiece. This model was Gibson’s work-horse electric and it’s not overly adorned with inlays and the like which matches perfectly with this old sunburst for a stripped down and mean look.
It’s genius all the way around with bound top and back with cream binding. A great player with an amazing original P-90, structurally sound with no cracks or breaks. Only beautiful finish checking with some wear and dings that give the guitar a great vibe and good looking.
As is common with these models, the plastic tuner tips are shrunken, so there is replaced new Kluson cream tuner tip (Only the white tip). Otherwise the guitar is all original with no breaks or any repairs. A strap button had also been added on. The neck is straight and the profile is the typical large round early 50’s profile neck which is not only comfortable, but also great for tone and sustain. The ES-125 has a beautiful rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dots.
Pickup and the Electronics/wiring remains untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickup. All original and correct.
Comes with its original Gibson chipboard case. We recommend not to use it (too poor condition)
- Width at nut: 1 11/16″
- Neck pickup 7.93 KOhm.
- Weight: 2.52 Kilograms.
