After all the many thousands of electric guitars that have come and gone through our doors, we still get really excited by a nice ES-125. These guitars might not be the best choice for garage band rock, but they sure sound great playing blues and rootsy melodic stuff. Technically, the ES125 is a budget jazz box, but it’s a bit more raw and dirty sounding than most jazz players want a guitar to be, and they tend to sound their best though a low-power tube amp with plenty of speaker overdrive.

This one is mostly original and pretty clean. The tuners have been changed and there is a little bit of CA glue on the back binding near the neck heel, but it’s otherwise quite straight. Frets and set-up are excellent, the bridge fit is great, and the pickup and wire harness are original and unmodified. The neck has Gibson’s ‘normal’ mid-50’s carve, with a full-feeling roundness, 1-11/16” nut and 24/75” scale. Original finish throughout.
