Beauiful condition Gibson ES-175 from 2001. Comes with original Gibson hard case.

A blend of comfortable playability and warm sonic versatility with presence to spare.

When the ES-175 debuted with a run of 129 in 1949, it nudged aside the ES-150, which had been the guitar of choice for jazz innovators like Charlie Christian and Eddie Durham. The ES-175 also proved a more manageable and less costly alternative to the L-5s thanks to its smaller body size and laminated top.

Due to its enduring appeal “ a blend of comfortable playability and warm sonic versatility with presence to spare “ the ES-175 has found its way into the hands and hearts of generations of players. Its success leapt across genres to play a role in defining the sound of early rock when Elvis Presley's guitarist Scott Moore acquired his first ES-295 “ essentially a model based on the ES-175 but equipped with two P-90 pickups “ and accompanied the King on his Sun Records classics. Other great ES-175 players include Pat Metheny, Joe Pass, Howard Roberts, Keith Richards, and Yes' Steve Howe.

Body and Hardware
The ES-175 was the first Gibson electric guitar to feature a Florentine cutaway beneath the neck, giving easy access to all 20 frets. It also had a carved rosewood bridge. For it's first four years the model came with one single-coil P-90 pickup. In the early '50s, more and more models were produced and sold, indicating the ES-175's rapid rise in popularity.

In 1953, a two-pickup model was introduced, available in either sunburst or natural finish. The guitar received an update in 1957 when its design incorporated two humbucking pickups.

Near-perfect Recreation
The modern recreation of this great guitar made by Gibson's Memphis Custom Shop craftspeople owes its lineage to the ES-175 of '57. The body is a comfortable 16" wide, 20" long and 3" deep with a curly laminated maple top, back, and rims. There's multi-ply binding on top and single-ply on the back, with nickel hardware including a ABR-1 bridge and a trapeze tailpiece.

The Custom Shop ES-175's one-piece mahogany neck supports the same 20-fret rosewood fingerboard that the guitar's always offered, with beautiful pearl split parallelogram inlays, single-ply binding and the distinctive, comfortable classic ES-175 neck profile. Scale length is 24-3/4" with an 1-11/16" width at the nut. The tuners are vintage tulip style.

Pickup wise, it has two ™57 Classic humbucker pickups with higher output and sustaining qualities than traditional single-coil pickups giving it plenty of bite when needed, with enough responsiveness to allow subtle nuances for enhanced dynamics.

Includes case.
