Grandfathers Old Les Paul


Recommended Posts

It’s not a Les Paul. The Les Paul Model is a solid body electric. It is a 1956 ES-225. It is considered a hollow body electric.   They used leftover trapeze tailpieces on this model from the very early (1952-ish) Les Pauls.  Yours appears to be in amazing condition other than the rotted tuner buttons, which are easily replaced nowadays. The pickguard is not present in the pics, might it be around somewhere?
