Gibson ES-125

Sunburst, 1954

I was looking for an old Gibson with aged woods and this is about the only affordable option nowadays. I bought it from Gregor Hilden in Münster with all the required legal paperwork. It was a smooth purchase since I could trade in my The Loar LH-309 therefore making the price a little less steep. I even got a very good deal on Gregor’s special GH OKKO Diablo booster/overdrive pedal and got to jam with him on his personal Gibson L5 that once belonged to Danny Gatton. What a great afternoon with a well known but still humble and friendly artist!
