Gibson / ES-225 TN / 1957 / Natural / Guitar
original 1957 Gibson ES-225 TN + original Lifton pink/brown case that was made in 1957 with a ‘U’ FON number and is in the rare and most desirable factory blonde or natural finish.
Please have a good look at the photos you will see for yourself the excellent condition this guitar is in. The only marks I can find are just a few dings here and there which I have tried to picture so please have a goof look at them.
There are no real wear marks on it and it is all original apart from the tuners that have been replaced with modern repros of the ‘burst type tuners. There were no extra holes drilled on the top or back to fit these so it would be easy to drop some originals in if you desire.
Included is a lovely, original Lifton brown/pink hardshell case that does have a few marks on the outside but is still good condition.
Quite a rare model too as mist of these were in sunburst, the natural ones look so much nicer in my opinion...
If you do want to play it I can assure you it will not disappoint. It has a nice low action and original P-90 is very stong and has some great bite. All electrics are original and the neck is the typical ’57 style, fairly beefy feel
