ES-125

Recommended Posts

A good starter guitar.  Don't believe they are currently making them so assume you are considering a used one?  If that is the case then the condition of it is everything - hopefully you can play it and see what it sounds like and if it stays in tune before you purchase.  My  first electric was a 125 purchased used in 1965.  It has a 60s slim taper neck, rosewood fingerboard, ebony floating bridge and a single P-90 pickup in the neck position.  Not a huge variety of tones available, but was a good first electric to start learning on.

Do you have a link to any photos of it?  What price are they asking?

I think it's a '54, all original. Pix I've seen show it's pretty clean. Solid older hardshell.

Price is around 2K. Sorry, don't know how to post pix.

Would like to use it for jazz comping.

Sounds like a pretty good find, but playing it would be a must before a purchase.  A lot of things can get out of whack with a 65 year old guitar, if it is truly that old.  Good luck, hope it works out for you.
