Gibson / ES-125TC / 1960 / Sunburst Finish / Guitar For Sale
This is a cool player grade yet mostly original 1960 Gibson ES-125T. Based on the original ES-125, the Gibson ES-125TC electric guitar provided an entryway for guitarists to dive into the world of archtop guitars. The ES-125TC was a thinline archtop w/a sharp cutaway that sported only one pickup, Gibson’s famous P-90. Though this is just one of many iterations of the ES-125 model, the thinline Gibson ES-125TC played an important role in the evolution of the guitar. The ES-125T was one of Gibson’s 1950s/60s student models – although really a very nice thinline guitar indeed, having no fancy appointments, but being made from essentially the same materials, and using the same construction methods as all Gibson thinlines of the period. Its sunburst finish is almost like new in all respects all over this pretty thing. Its thin body feels great w/its full scale dot inlaid unbound rosewood neck w/an odd serial # on top of its headstock. Its single black P-90 pickup is the most versitile pickup they made & has all tones covered from a mellow jazz to a bright crunchy rock tone. She’s got a few issues such as a repaired hole on its cutaway corner & 2 small plugs on 2 holes from addition controls in it at some point of its life. Its got 1 of its owners initials in gold on its headstock & now sporting a set of chrome Schaller tuners & pretty repro tortoise’gard & 2 gold speed knobs & its trapeze tailpiece. Its truly excellent overall & quite shiny & beautiful. Comes in a nice generic hard case.
