Description

1957 Blonde ES-175, 1st year for PAFs,100% original and very close to new looking - the pics don't do it justice. Beautiful original correct case in exceptional condition too. Other than a couple small marks on the top of the headstock - see pics - the guitar basically looks new, with the added bonus of the lacquer barely yellowing, so the wood looks very fresh and very close to the way it did the day it did leave the factory, and the binding has barely yellowed at all, so there's no unsightly contrast as we usually see ( seriously - the yellowed binding always looks great on sunburst Gibsons, on very new looking blondes, not so much.) And oh - by the way - the neck and neck set are perfect on this one, as are the frets, it's one of those '50's Gibsons that set up so amazingly well. Zero wear to the fingerboard and close to none on the frets. In 40 years I've only ever seen one or two others as nice. Detailed pics coming -
