Gibson ES225T sunburst 1959

Feast your eyes on this, a stunning original Gibson ES-225T from 1959. The ES-225T was introduced in 1955 as one of the first thinline models from Gibson, in appearance it is much like a slightly fancier 1960s ES-125TC with a different tailpiece. This one pickup version might not be as popular as the two pickup version, but the unique placement of the single P90 pickup in the middle of what would normally be considered the neck and bridge position gives the guitar it's own distinct tonal character. Very well suited for jazz, blues or even rock'n'roll. Only 716 ES-225T's were made in -what turned out to be the last production year- 1959. In great, Very Good condition for it's age, well kept with weather checking in the original finish, has had a refret (not recent), frets are in good nick. Also noteworthy is that the tailpiece and knobs are still original where most other specimens have had it replaced. Other features include a single pointed cutaway, fully hollow body construction, 1 P-90 pickup (7,6K) with black cover, trapaze bridge/tailpiece combo with strings looping over bridge, floating 3-ply pickguard (replacement), single bound top, back and rosewood fingerboard, kluson-style closed back tuners (newer), pearl dot fingerboard inlays, pearl logo and sunburst finish. Included is the original hardshell case for posterity and a newer hardshell case for safekeeping.
