1958 Gibson ES-125 – Sunburst
We present an all original 1958 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 that sounds healthy and balanced. Overall this hollow body is in excellent condition with minor nicks, dings and other cosmetic play wear. It has no cracks or any breaks.
The neck is straight and the profile is the typical large round 58 neck profile which is not only comfortable, but also great for tone and sustain. The ES-125 has a beautiful dark rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dots. Plenty of life left in the original frets.
Pickup and the Electronics/wiring remains untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickup. All original and correct.
Comes with a newer hardshell case.
- Width at nut: 1 11/16″.
- Neck pickup: 7.46 kOhm.
