This 1957 features the original PAF, harness, case and appears to be original except for a fret job done sometime in the past. This guitar has been played with a smooth neck. Frets have lots of life left.
Overall in Very Good / Excellent condition. Plays and sounds wonderful with a gorgeous blondish top rarely seen on ES-175’s.
With a fully hollow body and sharp Florentine cutaway, the Gibson ES-175 stands out as an all-time iconic jazz guitar. The ES-175 has seen some variation over the years, with different pickup and hardware configurations coming in and out of the Gibson lineup. Those with the ES-175D model number indicate the use of two pickups, and an N denotes a natural instead of sunburst finish. Although the ES-175 is noted as a jazz guitar, it has also been embraced by rock players like Yes’ Steve Howe who has a signature model.
