  1. 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.

    19 frets

    dot inlays

    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.
