    ES-125 ID

    Hey Ignatius The lower bout definetly measures 17 ". I bought a case for an ES-125 of ebay based on the neck and head stock. When in would not fit in the case I began searching for other models that might be more appropreate. The guitar is in great shape for its age. I did repair some wholes that were put in the sides of the guitar and put in fresh frets. Other than that is apprears to be orginal. It plays and sounds amazing. I can't belive 60 year old technolgy sound this good. The pickguard is vintage including the hardware. It had spent 25 years in a friends, fathers closet before it came to me. Now that I have a better discription it will probley end up on E-Bay soon. I wish that I could afford to buy it from her now but 3 kids in college rules that out. There is a simular guitar for sale on E-bay now.Check it out. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=170187009775&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=007 Jack

    The head stock has the pre-war scriped logo not he more recent style like were in the pictures that you directed me to. The fingerboard has dot inlays to the 15th fret and is unbound. The pickguard is unbound and has oldstyle hardware as was seen on prewar gibson mandolins. The tuning machines are original individual syle but the knobs have been replaced. I would like to send pics. Can that be done through this forum or can could I send them to your e-mail address.

    Can anyone help me identify a Gibson archtop guitar. I appears to be an early ES 125 except that it has a 17 inch lower bought and any info I find says it should be 16 1/4. It has a maple top back and sides. It has a prewar silk screen logo. There are no visable numbers anywhere. The head stock has the pre-war scriped logo not he more recent style like were in the pictures that you directed me to. The fingerboard has dot inlays to the 15th fret and is unbound.
