One of the rarest of all Gibson electric archtops, the short lived ES-135 was cataloged for only two years, between 1956 and 1958. Introduced in late 1954 as the ES-130, this model was an upscale version of the the ES-125, the firm's best selling archtop ever. The ES-135 boasted upgrade features including trapezoid fingerboard inlays, a bound neck, and the beveled 5-ply pickguard, all absent on...
A dutifully cared for vintage Gibson hollowbody-- it gives you a window into what it may have been like to stroll into a store in 1955 and see an ES-125 hanging on the wall. It's not dead-mint with some checking an scattered small nicks but it certainly doesn't look anywhere close to its true age. Good neck angle, orig frets in very good condition, nice full profile (.91" at the 1st fret to just...

A most delightful example of this elegant model, copied by many for over sixty years but never quite duplicated by anyone. From what many consider to be their best period, this lovely, earlier ES-125 is 100% original other than for a perfect replica set of tuners (originals included, in its case), with best-period, near-perfect slim frets, original solid Brazilian rosewood compensated bridge, and...
This super clean 125 is in remarkable condition, and includes original hang tag. The original finish shows little use & only some minor surface scratches- and very few. The frets appear original & have been played VERY little. Previous owner wanted new looking hardware & replaced the tuners, control knobs, tailpiece, strap button & bridge- all with...
Classic ES125 with fine checking on the body and a few small dings and scratches. Tuners were changed at some point. Kluson Reissue tuners have been installed and the back of the headstock lightly sanded probably to try to hide the holes or marks from the other tuners (see pic). No breaks. Plays well despite having a fair amouint of fret wear and has the typical chunky neck. Includes a newer...
Case: Original hard case
Comments: This vintage Gibson archtop is such a special instrument. It has been played and has the vibe of a guitar that has some stories to tell. Besides a missing pickguard, this beauty is all stock. We rarely see the 2-pickup version of the ES125 so it was a real...
