I have what I think is a 1960's ES-125TD. It has two P-90 pickups and no cutaways. It's lacking most of its original parts except for what I thought was the original neck and body. I recently looked up the serial number (279624) and found it to be a 1965 model. Gibson stopped making the ES125-TD in 1963 though. Is it possible that the neck came from a different instrument? I find it suspicious that both a second pickup and two pots would have been added at a later date. Is there another model I'm not considering? Any info would be appreciated. Photos are attached.
I got me one of these brand new babies a couple months ago. Just wondering what you think of it ? Honestly, I'm on the fence about it. I expected a lot more from the "ProBucker" P-90s. Even though there are current concert videos of George using her, I have to think the guitar had to have undergone an electronic makeover for George. My amps are a VibroVerb, Super Reverb, Twin and 100W Marshall ... none of which give me the tones I'd like to capture. AND, no, it's got nothing to do with George's finger work. Aside from that, the instrument is a beautiful piece of architecture. One more thing ... I also own an Epi John Lee Hooker Zephyr. Those Mini ProHumbuckers ROCK!!No need to sub them for Gibson minis!
