1959 Gibson ES 125 with Bigsby

For me there is something very appealing about a hollowbody electric with a non-cutaway body design. Yes, I know access to the top of the fingerboard is restricted - perhaps it's the anti-shredder in me that finds this desireable.

Most people associate such non-cutaway body designs with fully acoustic guitars but the Gibson ES 125 was clearly designed to be electrically amplified - just check out the depth of the body in the image above right. This particular example, currently for sale on eBay, comes complete with its original Bigsby vibrato.
