Gibson 1970 thinline catalogue page 9. Details of the dual pickup ES-125TDC (pictured) and the single pickup ES-125TC. This was the last Gibson catalogue to include them, as they were deleted by the end of 1970.
The thinline ES-125 guitars were visually very appealing, in vibrant Cherry Sunburst, with bound body and Florentine cutaway, though they were moderately appointed; just simple dogear P90 pickups, dot neck position markers, and no headstock inlays beyond the Gibson logo. But sales had dropped significantly since the peak years of 1966-67. In 1966 Gibson shipped 1587 thinline cutaway ES-125s, compared to just 91 in 1970.
Ideal for home or professional playing, the ES-125TDC is an economically priced guitar that is lightweight for easy playability. Features an arched maple top with deep, modern cutaway.
The March 1970 US zone 1 price of the Gibson ES-125TDC was $355, and it was not included in the September 1970 list. Interestingly, despite being included here, the single pickup ES-125TC is not included in either 1970 price list.
