Up for sale, a 1958 Gibson ES-125T in exceptional condition and in perfect working order. The guitar has a nice acoustic resonance, with a b.
Ig, clear sound and smooth bark. Surprisingly versatile given the simple electronics, this ES-125T can be twangy and bright or thick and mellow with the twist of a knob. The guitar is featherweight at 5lbs 4oz, and we've had this Gibson professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar and dialed in with 11-50 strings and comfortable action. The one-piece mahogany neck has a full and inviting C shape, m. Ore like a 59 profile with ample shoulder and depth but not the most massive of Gibsons 50s profiles.
904" at the 1st fret, filling out to 1.013" at the 12th. The original slender frets are intact and in remarkable shape overall, showing.
Notable wear only on frets 1-3, with lighter wear beneath the plain strings until fret 7. The truss rod is responsive, the neck is straight, and the guitar plays cleanly in all registers with no buzzing or dead spots.The original nut measures 1 11/16 in width. On the headstock, the guitar features a set of modern reissue Kluson Deluxe single line strip tuners that perfectly match the footprint of the original gears and provide very reliable performance and tuning stability. On the body, the guitar features stock electronics with an untouched wiring harness and "Bumblebee" tone capacitor. All of the stock plastic is intact on the guitar, with amber bonnet knobs, P-90 cover, and single-ply transparent tortoise pickguard. The nickel trapeze tailpiece and pickguard bracket are also stock, along with the carved and compensated floating Brazilian rosewood bridge. The neck set is ideal, the action is low, and there's room for further adjustment on both bridge thumbwheels. Both the "T" prefix factory order number and "ES-125T" stamps are visible through the F holes. In terms of cosmetic wear, this is a remarkably preserved and very original guitar, and the original gloss nitro lacquer three-tone Sunburst finish is extremely vibrant.
The guitar shows light vertical lacquer checking on the body and. Only a few small dings and a bit of light scuffing central to the back.
There are additionally some small nicks on the edges of the headstock, and s. Ome scattered shallow nicks along the neck profile as well, but nothing structural or distracting to the palm. As the photos show, this ES-125T is sure to delight discerning collectors. The original chipboard case with faux alligator exterior is included. There's some duct tape marks (not sticky) on the lower bout, and the lid is a bit blown out around the edges, yet the case is fully intact and the latches are present, as is the original handle.
