    The Gibson ES-125 is a legendary archtop guitar that has stood the test of time. This 1955 model is a shining example of the high-quality craftsmanship and timeless design that has made Gibson a household name in the music world.

    The guitar's laminated maple top and mahogany back and sides provide a warm and resonant sound, while the mahogany fat neck profile offers a comfortable playing experience. The classic "f-hole" design adds to the guitar's vintage aesthetic and contributes to its full-bodied tone.

    Equipped with a single original and warm sounding P-90 pickup, the ES-125 delivers a range of dynamic and versatile tones that can suit any genre of music. The volume and tone controls are located on the top of the guitar for easy access and adjustment while playing.

    The vintage hardware on this guitar, including the trapeze tailpiece, floating rosewood bridge, and Kluson tuners, is in excellent condition and adds to the guitar's overall charm and authenticity. The tuners are modern repros, the jack has been replaced, an extra strap button added and there has been some other tailpiece on there at one stage but aside from that no issues and definitely no cracks.

    The guitar's sunburst finish has a rich and vibrant appearance that is sure to catch the eye and is very clean.

    Included is the original soft case that looks as if it has been relined.

    Whether you're a collector or a musician, the 1955 Gibson ES-125 archtop guitar is a must-have for anyone who appreciates the beauty and artistry of vintage Gibson guitars. Its timeless design, versatile sound, and superb craftsmanship make it a true gem of musical history.
