Dead Mint Condition

The ES175 has been a constant in the Gibson line since it's introduction in 1949. The original design featured only a single single-coil P90 pickup in the neck position. A second pickup was added in 1951 and the P90 was switched to humbuckers in 1957. The ES 175 was the choice of many famous jazz guitarists from Barney Kessel to Joe Pass to Pat Metheny and even some rockers like Steve Howe. It's often been referred to as "the working mans" archtop. This one features a figured Maple body which, back in the day, was a rare feature indeed. This one is in crazy clean condition with a perfect setup and a great sounding pair of '57 Classic humbuckers.
