2012 Gibson Custom Shop ES-175


This is a 10 years old, legendary archtop jazz guitar a Gibson ES-175 in 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 comes with a beautiful, clean & mint Gibson hard case, inspection sheet, hang tag and Gibson Custom Certificate. It’s just a great collectible guitar (this model has been out of production for a few years now) and boy it sounds and plays great! As you can see and hear it on my demo video, this really plays like butter and sounds very very soft and velvety!!!

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 recognisable sound!r

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!
