hello everyone, im new to the forum and just had question, i am in love with the sound and look of the 50's Gibson Es-125, is there any other company guitar that has this classic look and can produce quality "bluesy" type of a sound for a little less money..

thanks for any help
Epiphone and Ibanez Artcore are worth looking into. Quality hollowbodies for cheap.
Gretsches are also good, but they tend to be expensive, even their asian-made models, and they sound completely different to Gibson styles.
I'm not sure of their overall quality but Tradition's copies get really high ratings on Harmony Central and they have been around for a while.



Oh, I also see them going for cheap prices on eBay when they pop up...

Always tin your strings.


Don't be afraid to be honest.
