1965/69 Gibson ES-125T :: non-original bridge fit / adjusted for neck set, pickup mounts improved, upper strap button internal reinforcement block fit / installed and set up. The ES-125T is originally equipped with a single P-90.  At some point the guitar was modified for dual humbuckers and a 3-way switch.  The neck pickup’s rear mounting ring screws fell into the pickup rout.  Maple blocks were fit to give these screws a solid mounting point.  The bridge top was previously swapped for a tune-o-matic with the adjustment wheels removed in an attempt to lower the action.  I refit the bridge foot and planed down the top of the foot to give more range to adjust the action.  Adjustment wheels were also added.  See the included links above for work-in-progress photos.
