Lucky!!!Gibson ES-125TDC. 1963-ish. Just like this one. It was 1981 or so. I used to play this through a 1958 original 5E3. I was not into that tonal package when I was 10. I really wanted a pointy neck guitar with a Floyd Rose. Scorpions man! That guitar was parked in a closet as soon as I saved up enough paper route money. I spoiled myself with an Aria Pro-II. I have no idea where the Aria went.
Later in life I could afford a decent ES-125TDC. 35 years later I found one at a guitar show for sale. Tried it. My pining ended in about 10 seconds. Not for me. Neck was very narrow.

How she play? Love to put it an open tuning and break out a slide.
I probably sold a few of those. My first post college job was managing a Western Auto store in the College Park area of Orlando in the late 60’s. They had both company stores and individually owned franchise stores. Mine was a company store.Truetone Archtop Acoustic from Western Auto. $28 in 1964. That's $259 today.
