  1. Hi JimR56 Thanks again ! I can't convince the seller that it is 1962, but 'm 100 % sure you are right with 1962. Two reputable guitar shops here in the Netherlands confirmed that 1962 is correct. best regards, Dirk
  2. I asked the seller of my guitar how they are sure the date is 1955. Their reply : Regarding your remarks, regarding the serial number first of all,The guitar is indeed from 1955, because its serial number is engraved on the back of the head and not only printed, moreover the first digit of your number is 5 which corresponds to the year 1955 (see table attached). I really don't know if this is correct ? thanks, Dirk
  3. Hi JimR56 Thanks ! It was sold to me as a Gibson ES 125 , 1955. I guess they made this mistake by following the serial numbers for a Gibson Les Paul ? Gibson used 5 or 6 digit ink stamped serial numbers on Les Paul guitars from 1952 until 1960. The first digit of this style serial number indicates the last digit of the year it was manufactured. Best regards, Dirk
  4. Here's a picture of my my Gibson ES 125. Pickguard and I think the knobs are not original. ( trying to find replacements, but that;s another topic) No Fon to be seen , only the serial number on the back of the headstock. ( 54439 ) I used the link for the serialnumbers that JimR56 posted here, but I can't find the year. Thanks, Dirk
  5. the serial number of my Gibson ES 125 is : 54439 on the back of the headstock What year is this one built ?
