Since its introduction in 1949, the Gibson ES-175 has been the most popular jazz guitar in the world. Originally fitted with a single P-90 pickup, the 175 added a second pickup by 1951, and humbuckers by 1957. The mahogany neck is a feature of the classic models of the 50's and 60's , and produces an instrument that is distinctly lighter in weight, and notably better balanced.
This custom guitar is crafted of extravagant tiger flame maple, and finished in a deep Cremona sunburst. And unlike typical nickel-plated examples of the model, this stunning instrument is fitted with gleaming gold hardware throughout. Crisscrossed with satiny rollers of deep flame figure, the guitar has been maintained in superb condition, free of pickwear, bucklewear, thumb or fingerboard wear, with 100% original hardware, finish and case.
Immaculate medium jumbo frets and a classic gentle C profile make the neck utterly effortless to play. With its fast, nimble 24 3/4" scale, ideal for stretch chords and lightning runs. The twin '57 Classic humbuckers are rich and sweet, and the 16" body is easy to cradle and substantially resistant to feedback. Complete with original papers and Certificate of Authenticity, this striking instrument joins a distinguished lineage that spans a half century of hard-working guitars. One only: call now.
