Gibson ES-325TD

Thinline semi-acoustic electric

Gibson ES325TD

The Gibson ES-325 was an entry level instrument in the ES thinline hollowbody range. It was introduced at the June 1972 NAMM show in Chicago, at a price of $375.

It was a replacement for the short-lived Gibson ES320TD. Although considerably cut down on hardware and appointments from the more expensive ES thinlines, it was still a very nicely constructed set-neck, hollow-body guitar. Built at the Gibson Kalamazoo plant, side by side with other thinlines, such as the ES335 guitars. It stayed in Gibson price lists into 1977, but production, albeit in very small numbers, continued until at least 1979. A total of 2445 instruments were shipped in the period 1972-1979; in this time 25000 ES335s were shipped - 10 times as many.

They were available in two finishes: Walnut and Cherry; though Cherry was laterly known as Cherry Wine, and finally Wine Red.
