Gibson L-48 / ES-125

  • Excellent Condition
  • Year: 1966
  • Includes Original Soft Shell Case
  • Serial #: 404101


Clean example of a 1966 Gibson L-48 with spruce top; this guitar is double-stamped ES-125 beneath L-48, indicating that Gibson had a surplus of 125 bodies and needed to fill an order for a L-48; an ES-125 would have had a single P-90 pickup and spruce top, and an L-48 would be all mahogany with no pickup. The body is fully bound, with factory hardware; light finish checking present, several dings (notably near bass-side f-hole), no cracks or repairs present. The mahogany neck has a rosewood fingerboard, original frets with minimal wear, 1-9/16" nut width, original Kluson tuners; some cosmetic dings on peghead; typical light forward relief, guitar plays well. Included in sale is original chipboard case.
