Hey guys,

I'm on the lookout for a thick body 1956 Gibson ES-125.

If you happen to know of one, shoot me a line.

Thanks!!

Thanks Bro! I've seen that one.

It's actually only a few miles from me.

But it's a thin body, the knobs are not org., the bridge is not either.

There's a ton of em out there.

Just hoping to help out an MLP brother if he has one to move.

Thanks for posting that one!

Oops. I should have looked closer.

That appears to be a T and not a 1956. My bad. :oops:

They made both in 56. the T version, and the carry over thicker one.

I show both models listed in my 56 Gibson catalog.

Later, around 60 I think, is when they added the cutaway to the thin version. And that's when they began to have neck set issues with that model.
