First of all, PLEASE WATCH MY WELL DETAILED, 4K, LONG REVIEW / DEMO VIDEO about this beauty: https://youtu.be/_g0PPlT2d2Q
This is a 28 years old (made in 1995), legendary archtop jazz guitar a Gibson ES-175 in ABSOLUTE MINT condition! If there is collectible condition then this is definitely a great museum quality example 🙂
I think this guitar needs no introduction. It’s THE industry standard jazz box. Wes Montgomery, Pat Metheny, Joe Pass and a millions of jazz players use(d) this model. This beauty is ALL ORIGINAL, and it comes with its original Gibson brown hard case. It’s just a great collectible guitar and boy it sounds and plays great! As you can see and hear it on my demo video, this really plays like butter!
Somehow Gibson made this big body jazz guitar comfortable. I was playing on it all day long when I recorded that video. I couldn’t put it down and it was easy peasy. I think this is the reason why even ultra fast jazz guitarists such Pat Metheny liked this model! Comfort, feel and seriously HUGE sound!
It’s ultra hard to find one in this condition especially THIS TOP OF THE RANGE model with the FIGURED top, back and sides! There were some cheaper ones built with plain maple but this looks like a million bucks with the figured maple!
