NGD - 1958 ES-225T

Recommended Posts

I joined this forum in 2014 when I had a ES-135, but never really posted.  Just got a birth year 1958 ES-225T - it's in better shape than I am!  It needs some new tuners, and a few minor adjustments.  I'm getting used to the position of the single middle pickup, but love the sounds and tone I am getting.  Has the original Les Paul bridge which is really cool!  Hopefully, I'll be posting more in the Vintage Corner!

You know the rules, buddy. Figure out how to post pics and lay 'em on us.
If I didn't find the M65 I would still be looking for a 225T.

Enjoy. Dave

 Sounds like you found yourself a very nice guitar and are enjoying it. I have a 1956 ES225T, one year older than me, and I enjoy it very much so I know from where you speak. They are unique guitars and I think the tailpiece is part of the reason. Have fun.  Thanks John

Thanks, gentlemen!  The guitar was at a luthier for new tuners and a new nut.  Original tuners were not working, and the nylon nut was pushing the high E string to the edge of the fretboard.  Everything else original!  Here are some pics:

I remember seeing this thread before the photos were posted, and then I somehow missed the update with the photos.  Beautiful 225!
