cutaway es-125


Recommended Posts

Lots of info out there. George’s guitar was one of the many variations of the ES-125, which has been around since the mid to late 40s. They were all based on a 16” body. George’s original one is an ES-125 TDC (thin body, double pickup, cutaway). This model came out in 1960 I believe, and ran until 1970. I assume his was stripped and refinished, as to my knowledge they never made that variant in blonde. It’s possible his was cherry sunburst and faded, but that’s a long shot. If it was cherry sunburst, that would suggest mid 60s. Any ones I’ve seen from the first few years were definitely dark tobacco sunburst.
