1958 ES125

I'm way late to this, but here's what I've got from the reference shelves:


My well-worn copy of "Gibson Electrics - The Classic Years" by A. R. Duchossoir doesn't mention lefties of this model at all, but says there were 1,528 full-depth ES-125's shipped in 1958. There were also 1,202 ES-125T (thinlines) that year, 332 ES-125 3/4's (the three-quarter sized version) and 320 ES-125TD's (double pickup thinlines).


My older copy of Gruhn's Guide to Vintage Guitars doesn't mention lefty version either...

Thank you for the shipping information.


Gibson has no record on how many custom left handed guitars were made. Their records are very bad. When they looked up the s/n, they believe it was shipped in 1962. I assured them that they are incorrect and it was shipped in 1958.


Yes, it is a hollow body sunburst.
