I'm hoping to make use of the forum's collective wisdom. I have a chance to buy a 1957-8 sunburst Gibson ES-225 - the single p90 version. The price seems to be about right - $2200 - not a steal but not unreasonable. The thing is, I don't know much about these guitars. What can you tell me about them? Are they well made? Would it be appropriate for playing jazz on if I put on flat-wound strings? I like Burrell/Kessel/Montgomery type sounds for jazz (different pickups, of course). Can I get close with a 225? Thanks. p.s., I know that there is a lot of information online. Don't be an ass-hat and tell me to google it or use the search function. I'm looking for personal experiences and knowledge here.
