9.0 of 10 Condition (light weather checking overall, a few tiny dings, a few small finish flakes on the edges, strap pin in heel, has a repro tailpiece mounted. the original is included but has a crack in the usual spot. It can be braised by a jeweler)
I don't get too many original owner guitars walking into the store these days, but here's one of them. It's in very clean condition and plays beautifully. The frets have recently been dressed so they are perfect. And the action is low and comfortable with a fat sounding pat. # humbucker. Gibson's venerable ES 175 has always been considered the working pros jazz guitar. Nothing fancy but a really quality archtop which has been favored by many famous jazzers including Pat Metheny, Joe Pass and Barney Kessel. This one won't disappoint!
