RARE 1957 Gibson ES-175D in Original Factory Cherry Red Finish and Early Non-Sticker PAF Pickups. 1956 Factory FON starting with letter V suggests that this guitar was factory routed for PAF's earlier than '57. Serial #A25147 is from aprox March/Apr of 1957. Condition is VG with Play wear and possible replaced pickguard but you probably won't find another Cherry Finish 175D from 1957!! I've seen one from 1959 and a few in the early 60's but thats it! This could be the earliest 50's Cherry Red Gibson Electric with PAFS!!
