Gibson ES225T Thinline Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1958

Gibson ES225T Thinline Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1958

Introduced in 1955 and built until 1959, the Gibson ES225T was one of the first three new Thinline guitars with the Byrdland and the ES-350T. The ES-225T had the lowest price of the three and used the Les Paul trapeze tailpiece. Most models sported a single P-90 pickup in the middle position, though from 1956 to 1959 the ES-225TD – thinline and double pickup – was available. Both of these versions were discontinued shortly after the 1958 introduction of the very popular ES-335 and ES-355; the ES-345 appeared in 1959.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES175 Sunburst Refinish, 1960

Here we have a Gibson ES175 sunburst, built during 1960 in Kalamazoo, Michigan and sporting a refinish and a pair of gold Guild humbuckers. The Gibson ES175 sunburst – its primary finish, though it was also available in natural at extra cost – was introduced in 1949 and produced until 2017. At that point, Gibson was restructuring and terminated several models and the Memphis plant. It is based on a number of previous Gibson arched top electric models, with Maple Laminates used for the body to reduce feedback.
