Gibson's ES175 is one of the most venerable and venerated of their many jazz guitar designs. Often referred to as the working man's archtop the ES 175 may not be the fanciest guitar in the world but all the design effort went into making a guitar that will work for the most demanding of guitarists. The 16" body size makes for a guitar that is easy to handle with a comfy 24 3/4" scale. The single humbucker in the neck position is all most jazzers want. A second pickup near the bridge? Get outta here! And this one is in killer condition too, showing only some normal finish crazing on a 50 year old guitar and almost no playing wear. Hell, I have more playing wear on myself.
