1956 Gibson ES-225, Sunburst finish in excellent condition. Original dog ear P-90. Upgraded bridge and tailpiece. Non original case.

This really is a remarkably clean instrument for it's age. The finish is original and still very clean and vibrant, with lacquer checking and only a few tiny dings. The newer bridge allows for adjustable action & intonation which is much better than the old trapeze tailpiece and non adjustable bridge. The neck is almost as wide as a 1960 profile which is uncommon. Usually a 56 would have a deeper neck. The slim neck allows for smoother playability. The frets are still big with hardly any wear.The fingerboard is in great shape as is the pick guard which is all intact.

This guitar has been fully check over by my technician Chris Ward and is ready to play. The factory order number is: V8695 7. The weight is 6lbs.
