(USED) This one will be a dream find for some of our jazzers! This ES-175D was built in 1955 and comes to us in superb condition. It has been re-fretted and has a few cosmetic bumps and bruises, including a few surface dings and a few light chips on the headstock... but the sound, playability and overall vibe are exquisite!
Enjoying the longest production run of an electric guitar, Gibson made the ES-175 from 1949 to 2017, and it has been a stalwart of jazz, blues and even rock and roll ever since its introduction. These laminated maple guitars were originally meant to be a less expensive alternative to Gibson's flagship L5 archtops, but they easily eclipsed that model in popularity as the years went by. The P90 version ran for just a few years in the mid-50s before being replaced with humbuckers, and now the P90 configuration is prized for the roundness of tone. This guitar has a 1 11/16" nut and a full but not uncomfortable C neck profile.
Excellent setup and all electronics are working perfectly. This one has the goods! Includes non-original (but very high quality) tweed-style TKL hard case. Original hang tag also included!
