Gibson 1963 ES-125TD - Pre-Owned


Sold Make an enquiry


Grab yourself a slice of guitar history with this Gibson ES-125 from 1963! A true classic, countless musicians have played the ES-125, from Bill Frisell to Joe Pass to Tracy Chapman. With double P90 pickups and no cutaway, this entry-level thinline electric archtop was Gibson's successor to the ES-100, eventually discontinued in the 1970s. Simple and no-fuss, it has an unbound rosewood fingerboard, simple dot inlays, laminated maple and poplar construction, and a mahogany neck. This particular model is in very good condition given its age, with only minor signs of wear, fully functional electronics, and its original hard case (which, admittedly, has seen better days, but still functions!).
