Gibson ES-125 Archtop Electric Guitar Sunburst, 1961

Gibson ES-125 Archtop Electric Guitar Sunburst, 1961

Starting its life as the ES-100, the Gibson ES-125 was built as an affordable quality electrified archtop guitar for jazz and combo guitarists. It appeared as the ES-125 from 1941 to 1943, with wartime restrictions suspending production until 1946. The ES-125 stayed in production until 1970, but in the 1950’s thinline and cutaway versions appeared as the ES-1235T and ES-125TC, and an extra pickup at the bridge was available in the ES-125 TDC model.

❌SOLD❌  Gibson ES-175 Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1991

The Gibson ES-175 archtop electric was in production from 1949 until 2017, because it does exactly what many jazz and rock guitarists needed it to do. Comfortable and reliable, the ES-175 delivers a rich tone and its laminate construction makes it feedback resistant, compared to carved solid top models. To that point, it did appear on large, higher volume rock stages, notably in the hands of Steve Howe of Yes. It was also a common choice for early rock and rockabilly artists.
