Built in very limited numbers only between 1965 and 1970, the ES-125C became one the rarest Gibson archtops of the postwar era. With its uncluttered design and a sleek, elegant neck, the ES-125C offered classic tone with contemporary playability. The laminated body offered superior feedback resistance, and the guitar produced a respectable acoustic tone for playing unplugged.

This example has been made into a players guitar, namely having been routed for humbuckers with Tim Shaw pickups installed, replaced electronics with added volume, tone, and pickup switch, a new fretboard, shaved neck, replaced tuners, replaced nut, and replaced truss rod cover with a pinned bridge so it doesn't move out from under you. It is in great playable condition and is just begging to get back on stage!

Includes a newer brown Gibson USA case.
