About the Gibson ES-225TDN 1958

This old lady has some history. On the personalised original brown lifton case we find the name “Joe Keene”. We checked the name Joe Keene on the ‘ol interwebster and it seems like he was a serious songwriter in Memphis during the 1950/60/70ies. He wrote several hits for names as; Charley Pride, The Willburn Brothers, Dickey Lee and Narvel Felts. Besides the case he also wrote his name and address in the body of the guitar.

The Gibson was modified to (probably) Joe Keene’s wishes, but what a guitar! For example, the original tailpiece was replaced with a later Gibson Diamond tailpiece and early 1960s ABR-1 bridge with nylon saddles. The original tuners have also been replaced with (expensive) Double Line Gibson Kluson tuners from the same era as the bridge. The upgrade makes the guitar easier to intonate and keeps it in tune.

The knobs are also not original, but besides this the guitar is 100% original.
