PLEASE WATCH MY LONG REVIEW / DEMO VIDEO: https://youtu.be/_EObUczz4aw
Oh man, look at this blonde ES-175!!! Look at the highly figured AAA flame maple body…It’s a 16 years old guitar!
This beauty is ALL ORIGINAL and it’s in VERY VERY NEAR MINT CONDITION (only a few very small marks – please check my photos and the long review / demo video)! With absolute zero fret-wear, I think this is the cleanest 16 years old, second hand example. Including the hard case (that is in as good condition as the guitar). This is a VERY COLLECTIBLE guitar. There’s not many around, and definitely not in this all original (unmodified) condition.
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.
The body of this eye-popping guitar is finished in a classic natural blonde finish, showing off the exceptionally intense tiger maple throughout. Extravagantly figured with flame almost 3D in depth, the instrument has been maintained in superb condition!
With immaculate medium jumbo frets, the fingerboard is utterly effortless to play, with a fresh high-precision setup over a gentle C profile neck. The 24 3/4″ scale is fast and nimble, the humbuckers are fat, velvety and sweet, and the 16″ body is easy to cradle and substantially resistant to feedback.
It comes with its original deluxe black plush lined Gibson Custom logo hardshell case. In this ALL ORIGINAL / CLEAN condition this 16 years old guitar is a VERY GOOD INVESTMENT!!!
