Just picked this one up at a very good price. All original, pots are clean, and goes real well with Jazz, Blues and Country twang.

This one's a 1963 ES125TDC, making it the baby of my 125s.

Very nice; the photos make it look as though it's very clean and in good nick? Congratulations wither way.

That's a nice one! Any problems with the plastics deteriorating?

Sweet - reminds me so much of my first electric, which might have been a '63 (I bought it used in '65 or '66). Exact same color and hardware etc, but mine was only a single pick-up.

I know this is old but I am thinking about possibly getting one of these. What is the neck profile like on it?

It'll be a fairly slim & fast '60s profile, with a 1-11/16" nut.

At some point during 1965, Gibson switched to a very narrow profile, with a 1-9/16" nut. I have a '66 acoustic & electric, both with the narrower profile, and I actually enjoy it, but a lot of folks don't get along with it at all.
