Looks like a vintage ES-355, with Maestro and Split Diamond Headstock. Its the Vari-tone switch that gives it away.

Is it really $25,000?

A vintage one, yeah. I don't know that there are any currently in production. They're probably damned expensive if there are.

Well that one being a 1959 model (and one of the sweetest guitars Ive ever played) is. The one that RA is using Is from around 1966, you can get one of those for about.... $6k in normal condition.

^this one is a suitable replacement for about 2-3k cheaper.

And only $1k more than a brand new one:

Altho if you are on a budget:

That can probly cut it.

They are still in production just not in that config (the ES-345 and Lucille are currently the only ES guitars that have vari-tone).
