Eli 'Paperboy' Reed's Gibson


Recommended Posts

Eli is rockin' a Gibson ES-225T - made somewhere between 1955 and 1959. The T was the single pickup model, with that wacky mid-body position; the TD had two pickups, in the usual bridge and neck positions. The 225 was a true hollowbody, with no center block. Generally thought to be the model replaced by the ES-330.

Sweet guitars - I had one and was amazed at the range of tone they could produce. I found the pickup placement a pain, though - guess it was right where my hand wants to pick, no matter where I told it to go instead.
