Here’s a pretty nice old Gibson ES-125 from 1951. Typical to the model it has Maple back and sides, a Spruce top, and Mahogany neck.

Some professional mods and upgrades have been done:
Single P-90 pickup – this is a new Jason Lollar old style P-90. It sounds fabulous with maybe better sound and volume than an original.
Newer correct trapeze tailpiece – Original was long ago replaced with a less than desirable varsion. Now it is restored to normal.
New professional fret job. The fret work included filling finger wear divots in the precious old Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard.

Appears to be the original nut.
Original bridge and original Kluson 3-on-a-plate closed back tuners with cream buttons. Antique cream binding around top and back edges of the guitar.

One top crack repaired between pickguard and treble waist of top. One “jack hole” type repair in treble side just below treble waist. Some small blemishes under strings in front of bridge. Blackened peghead shows flaking, affecting the Gibson logo decal.
Some finish worn off back of neck.

Comes with very nice newer Gibson TKL hard case.
This is a great sounding and great playing ES-125, ready for stage and screen.
