Vintage 1968 Gibson ES-175 in stunning original sunburst finish!

Thanks for looking!

First off, this 175 is SUPER CLEAN, plays great and is a rare factory single-humbucker model.   Gibson has currently stopped making the ES-175 as a production model guitar - custom orders only.

The Gibson ES-175 is an iconic guitar and the "single PAF" version such as the one you see here is a jazzer's dream.  One neck pickup is all your really need!  Just ask Wes!
This model was used by many jazz legends from Wes Montgomery to Herb Ellis, Joe Pass, Jim Hall and many others they can simply deliver the goods when it comes to vintage jazz tone.   They can also be driven into serious rock or blues territory.

This example is a great option for the player or collector.   Long unavailable vintage tone woods including the old good Rosewood, Honduran Mahogany and Flamed Michigan maple contribute to the fantastic tone of this ES-175.   Player priced at what you'd expect to pay for a custom shop reissue, this guitar will blow any modern archtop out of the water in looks, feel and especially warm woody vintage tone.

Super solid neck set
1 an 9/16th inches at the nut

The neck is straight and the trussrod functions perfectly.

This 175 has it's original frets - which are now 55 years old.   In spite of the age, and the need for a fret dress, they still play surprisingly well with almost no fretbuzz.  A testament to the quality of the fret-work Gibson performed during this period!

Serial number 528874 dates this to late 1967 / early 1968

Please note that the orange label has fallen out of the inside of the body (not uncommon on these) - the serial number on the back of the headstock remains as clear as day!
