    Thanks all.

    It's really surprising how affordable the 125's are. I guess they're seen as a bit of a niche guitar. They look like they could only be used for swing or something, but I've tried all sorts with it and it seems pretty happy, although it doesn't suit the pose for downtuned Swedish Death Metal or something. The P90 is really quite lovely, and can turn out a surprisingly bright jangle if that's what your heart requires.

    Without wishing to sound like a complete wuss, it's one of those guitars that begs you to play it. It's sitting in the lounge at the moment and every time I walk past I can't resist picking it up and giving it a little tickle, like a sunburst maple puppy, and it never fails to make me smile to myself.

    Had a 1961 ES 125 TC. It was 3 years old when I bought it. New it sold for $ 295.00 and yes it came with a cardboard case but no jack plug cover. If I had not needed to pay the rent, I still might have it.

    You too, brother. Still being buried in work. Not much time for enjoying GT. I hope all is well with you!

    Completely agree.
    My Loar 301 is the ‘poor man’ exact model, and I have used it in so many different situation that I could tell is one of my most versatile guitars. More versatile than my 6120, if you ask me.
    From jazzy clean to Superfuzz, she loves them all. That thin body produces a very manageable feedback, which in some genres is a powerful tool. Also, with the right action it’s a slide machine.
    Of course it looks like a swingster from the Cotton Club era, but it could growl like a beast if asked to.
    On of those guitars you love to have around and that you could pick up at any moment if some idea comes in mind without too much thinking.
    Well yours it’s a top notch.
    I always wanted to play a 120 too, with the ceramic single coil. I bet it sounds sweet as well.
