❌SOLD❌  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.

Gibson ES-175D Sunburst, 1967

The Gibson ES-175D was the most common variant of this workhorse archtop, and first appeared in 1953. The D indicated Double Pickups, and the original single pickup version was made in smaller numbers until 1971. The ES-175 was produced from 1949 until 2017, and appeared on countless stages and recordings. Based on a single cutaway, 16.25 inch wide but full depth arched-top F hole body, the ES-175 uses Maple laminates for the body, which improves feedback rejection.
