1957 Gibson ES-125

Just snapping a few pics before we pack this one up for South Carolina Guitar Show.  This is a near mint example of a Gibson ES-125, with a big 'ol jazz box body and a single P-90 in the neck.  The finish, binding, frets, and bridge are all in amazing condition.  This is pretty much the most stripped-down, straightforward archtop electric hollowbody Gibson made, but in the right hands that one pickup can do a lot of damage.

The only thing that's been swapped out is the buttons on the tuners - the rest is all-original.  Come out to the show this weekend and check out this and all of the other amazing instruments that will be there.
