Pickups/Hardware: Original hardware, original “dog-ear” P90 (rated at 7.7 kOhms), volume and tone controls

Cosmetic Condition: Lots of vibe on this ’53 Gibson with some fine checking throughout and there are holes from where the pick guard had been moved. The sides have some dings and the back has some scratching and buckle rash. The neck is heavily worn from the fretting hand especially around the 1st position and the headstock is looking good with some dings. This ES-125 is bursting with character!

Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.
