Initially introduced in the 1940's as the companies student model archtop guitar, the Gibson ES-125 has had a number of variants over the years, all of which with their own sound and style, making them a hugely popular and relatively affordable vintage Gibson. This 1966 ES-125 TDC is great example of a mid '60s ES-125, with a dual pickup configuration and pointed cutaway design.
This guitar sounds exceptional, with a lively acoustic resonance that pairs perfectly with a dual dog ear P90 pickups that are well balanced and offer a nice woody tone with plenty of clarity. The body is finished in a typically '60s Cherry Sunburst with a single bound top, tortoise grain guard and chrome trapeze tailpiece and bridge.
This guitar is in all original condition with the exception of the tuner buttons, which may have been replaced. It is exceptionally clean for a guitar of its age, with the typical sunburst fade out found with this finish, and some minor signs of play wear and patina to the rear of the guitar body.
This guitar is in excellent condition, and is externally and internally original. This guitar has been given a full service by our luthiers at the Vintage Instrument Workshop, and includes a 3 year warranty.
