Identifying this Model


Recommended Posts

Was it slimmer than a regular full-bodied jazz-box, can you remember?


I'm not 100% sure but it looks like an ES-125 TDC.; i.e. an ES-125 Thin-line Double (pickup) with (Florentine) Cutaway.

1956 would fit-in nicely with this model.


Hopefully an archtop person will be able to answer your question with more certainty!


Nice guitar and pic, BTW!

ES-225TD. The long trapeze tailpiece and neck binding gave it away. They made the one pickup version from 1956 to 1959. I would assume the two pickup version would be the same but I don't know for sure.

Ah, my mistake. Thanks for the correction and clarification, ksd.

My (40-year-old) source book doesn't have a pic of the 225 but it does confirm the specs you mention and that the two-p'up version was offered from 1956.


Very nice guitars!
