1956 Gibson ES 125
This is a nice 1956 Gibson ES-125. Plays great, with the action at 5/64" on the treble and 6/64" on the bass. Classic tone from the P-90.
At some point, someone converted this guitar to left-handed, including moving the pickguard to the opposite side. We replaced the nut with bone, and have done some minor repair to fill the pickguard screw holes. We also dressed the frets, and replaced the tuners that were on it, which were not original, with Klusens. At a few points around the body, the binding has shrunk away from the side, but all of the glue joints appear to be solid.
Soft shell case included.
