Vintage Guitar Scene: 1962 Gibson ES125 TCD

1962 Gibson ES125 TCD (serial number 50018)

I bought this guitar in the early 90s. I was driving back from the the Blue Mountains (west of Sydney) and passed a music shop. I just had a feeling, something said to pull over and go into the shop. In the back corner leaning against a wall was this guitar. It was covered in dust with old rusty strings and it just grabbed my attention, it didn’t even have a case! I ended up buying the guitar, took it home, cleaned it up and put flatwound strings on it, it came up a treat and sounds great. I have used this guitar lots both live and on recordings.
