    They're VERY different.

    While there's been variations over the years, most 175's a deep bodied and truly hollow.

    135's are hollow with a block under the bridge. Pretty sure the 137 is a semi-hollow, like a 335.

    The 125 exisited in many different forms over the years, but whether deep or thin, cut or non-cut, it was always fully hollow.

    The more expensive guitars reflect added features, added quality, added time to build and, I guess added popularity today. There are huge numbers of variances among the whole ES-XXX's. There are books that explain... I read some, but there is just too much to remember..
