My neighbor brought over his fathers Gibson hollowbody and amp from WW 2 era. I am guessing they are from 1942 from what I could find on internet. Guitar plays very well for its age. He is wanting to sell but wants to know what he has. Looking for any help or possible buyer who is interested.

Thanks, he is looking to sell and wants to know what year they both are and approx. what each would be worth. I gave the guitar back yesterday, but played it through my Carvin amp, had a real nice sound, pots worked perfectly, neck was in tune all the way up the board. Had to give it back so I wouldnt keep playing it! Dont need another guitar!

Here is Eric Claptons one, sold at Christies for a large sum -

But a Dutch music shop has one and they say it is an ES-125;
