This is a great example of early '70s Gibson at its best and weirdest-- the ES-325. The original Gibson logo-embossed mini humbuckers are sweet and snappy in the neck position and have plenty of chime and growl in the bridge. The original frets still have plenty of life left and the the hardware and electronics are all original as well. Thought of as a bit of a "misfit" in the ES line when it first came out, the ES-325 has had a bit of a second life in recent years due to its extensive use by Caleb Followill of the Kings of Leon. Grab yourself an incredible (and affordable) piece of Gibson history. 

This early 1970s model is all original, but does have some road scars. The Gibson speed frets show some wear, and the neck was at one point broken and repaired, with a screw added to better hold the repair in place. Reach out if you'd like a further in-hand description!
