Maybe it’s just that the passage of time has changed our perspective, or maybe pride of craftsmanship was more common 50 years ago, but back in the day, even the so-called “student” guitars exuded serious cool. Take this late-‘50s Gibson ES-125T for example—it’s outfitted with a single P-90 pickup that’s perfectly suited for riffing away on a tempestuous take of “Stormy Monday” or fingering a 7#11 chord in your sultry chord melody arrangement of “Misty.” The finish is a perfectly applied Gibson three-tone sunburst and the combination of a maple top with mahogany back and sides produces a great fundamental tone that is surprisingly loud and always tuneful. We bought this guitar from its only owner, who was basically a non-player and avowed that he had never even changed most of the original flatwound strings. Needless to say, the guitar is entirely original (except for the afore-mentioned string changes), with only the slightest evidence of playwear. Includes original faux-alligator chipboard case, which is still relatively solid, but probably should be retired in favor of a more rugged modern case. SOLD!
