We present an all original 1958 Gibson ES-225T in its original Sunburst finish. Made in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
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 condition. It has been well cared for over the years and it has some finish wear, especially the back of the neck and a few dings, scratches and other cosmetic play wear. As is natural for vintage lacquer finishes, there is a gorgeous amount of lacquer checking.
The frets are original and there is plenty of life left. Good Chucky 58 mahogany neck with dark rosewood fingerboard and pearl dots. The original Kluson Deluxe tuners with creme plastic buttons are still in place and working perfectly. 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 remains untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickup. All original and correct.
Comes complete with a non original hardshell case. Latches and handle are in perfect working order.
