Cosmetic Condition: This ES-125 shows nice aging and play wear. Finish checking is present throughout. There are two areas on the headstock face where it appears something was glued to it. Some material has chipped away from the back treble side corner of the neck heel.
Serial Number: 150884
Tech Notes: Currently setup with 10-gauge strings using a wound third string. The action is set low and the neck sights with very slight relief along the bass side edge. The truss rod functions correctly. This relief is due to slight inconsistencies from the past refret and is not affecting the playability as the frets are level under the strings. The frets are wide and low showing minimal play wear as one of our in-house techs dressed them recently. -- The serial number and electronics date this Gibson from 1963.
