Up for sale is a beautiful, rare, and quite clean 1957 Gibson ES-175D in its original natural blonde finish. You see a fair amount of sunburst 175s, but not a lot of naturals and this one is fabulous. Features of this example include dual original early PAFs (one with sticker / one without), Orange “A” label nickel hardware, nice chunky ’50s neck profile with a 1 11/16th nut width, Kluson single line / single ring tuners, and a whole lot of vibe. This guitar is in wonderful condition less some slight natural finish discoloration on the back of the headstock (no overspray or touch-ups), some light finish checking, and the pickguard being slightly warped, which is common. These things aside, this example is 100% original and comes complete with its original brown Lifton hardshell case.
