 1958 Gibson ES-225  Natural Finish

Single cutaway thin-line model features laminated maple construction with double F holes. Slim 1 11/16" body depth similar to thin-line guitars that came later. Solid maple partial center block helps reduce feedback and gives this guitar a more aggressive rock and blues attack. Les Paul designed trapeze tailpiece with wrap around bridge bar. Mahogany neck with 24 3/4" scale. Bound Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard. Single Gibson P-90 pickup with Volume and Tone controls. B/W/B pickguard with side mount. Individual closed style tuning machines. It includes the original chipboard case and also a modern SKB molded hard-shell case.

Instrument is in EXCELLENT CONDITION especially for being 65 years old. Serial#459216. It has signs of age but this guitar appears to have only ever been gently played. It has entirely original parts and even the original chipboard case with faux-snakeskin. This is a beautiful vintage guitar in especially fine condition. Extremely lightweight (5lbs 13oz) and fun to play. The P-90 sounds great and can be used for all styles of music. Ships in the SKB hard-shell case and comes with the original faux-snakeskin case. Also comes with contemporary aftermarket tuners that that are drop in replacements for the originals.  The only repair done is a strap button hole as been filled, it had been installed on the upper side of the heel. The finish has been examined under black light and is original with only the recent strap button repair.
