Gibson ES-225TD (1956)

No Longer Available

"The ES-225T series of thin-bodied, cutaway guitars offer outstanding professional instruments in the popular priced field. Combining the rigidity and tone features of a sold body guitar with the light weight, easy-to-hold shape of conventional styling, these instruments are available in single or double pickup models." - 1959 Gibson catalog 

This is a killer 1956 Gibson ES-225T! Excellent, all-original condition with the exception of an upgraded wiring harness and new tuners. There is very little fret wear, the action is very comfortable, and all electronics work as they should. Beyond some finish checking and yellowing of the binding, this guitar is very clean.

Simply a great sounding and playing example of this classic model! Please email or call us with any questions or for an in-hand description. Priced with hardshell case. 

On consignment - no trades please.
