Hey - i just picked up a Gibson ES-125 that the seller claims to be from 1956.
I am trying to confirm that but not having much luck at all.
Here are some details...
It looks old.
no number stamped on the outside anywhere i can see.
there is a numer w996 stamped in ink that i can see through the hole on the electronics side.
the single p90 looks original
looks like the nut and the tuners have been replaced
what are some things i can use to date it?
the picture makes it look way better than in person - it definitely has some battle scars.
thanks! any help would be appreciated.
