Gibson ES175 Hollowbody Electric Guitar
A true jazz icon, the Gibson ES-175 resonates with the same brilliant tones that have inspired players for over 60 years. First introduced in 1949, the ES-175 has been through a number of different versions in its history; the current ES-175 channels the classic late '50s-era ES-175s with dual humbuckers and an unmistakable Florentine cutaway. The deep, maple body combined with the elegant design and warm electronics deliver all the tone and quality of a classic ES-175 as only the craftsmen at Gibson could produce.
Classic Tone from a Classic Guitar
With its deep body and '57 Classic humbuckers, the ES-175 produces bold textures and lush sustain, making it an outstanding guitar for jazz. The body is constructed from bright-sounding maple with a single piece mahogany neck. The ES-175 swells with rich tonal flavor, and includes a three-way pickup selector to dial in the exact right tone in any situation. Each Gibson ES-175 is handcrafted by the masters at Gibson's Memphis facility with the utmost attention to detail at every step of the process.
Stylish Vintage Appointments
Gibson has outfitted the ES-175 with a set of vintage flourishes to match its classic tone. The inlays on the rosewood fretboard are elegant split parallelograms, and the body's white binding excellently highlights the natural grain of the maple. The trapezoid tailpiece follows the overall vintage character of the guitar, as does the vintage sunburst finish, vintage tulip-style tuners, and classic ABR-1 bridge.
