GIBSON USA ES-175 Semi Hollow Bodied "Natural + Rosewood" (2006)

GIBSON USA ES-175 Semi Hollow Bodied "Natural + Rosewood" (2006)

The quintessential jazz and blues workhorse! The Gibson ES-175 has been a favorite of players since 1949. It's hard to beat its warm and mellow tone and gorgeous looks. The hollow body is made from laminated flame maple for good resonance and resistance to feedback. The mahogany neck features a 24.75 inch scale bound rosewood fingerboard with trapezoid inlays. Dual 57 Classic pickups deliver the warm sound of a PAF. A fancy trapeze tailpiece, floating bridge with Tuneomatic and Kluson style tuners round out the hardware. The finish is a gorgeous natural lacquer that really accentuates the beauty of the wood. A classic guitar and essential for any guitar arsenal.

This ES-175 plays great and has nice tone. The neck is straight and the frets are good. The pickups are warm and articulate and deliver great jazz, blues and rockabilly sounds. Everything works as it should. This is a nice used guitar. It shows light pick and clearcoat scratches as well as a few indents. There's a mark on the back that is under the finish. My assumption is that it came from the factory that way and was a cosmetic flaw in the wood. It's underneath the clearcoat. No big deal. Comes in original hardshell case.

It's hard to argue with the tone of a great archtop. Warm and articulate. The ES-175 is considered by many to be one of the best. A new one will set you back a whopping $3699.00 in natural. Wow! I can save you a ton of cash on this one.
