Product Description

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.

Building on a long legacy of jazz guitar excellence, the Gibson ES-175 is a truly classic hollowbody. With its full-bodied tone and deep sustain, it's little wonder that the ES-175 has been a favorite of greats such as Joe Pass, Pat Metheny, and Yes' Steve Howe.

4.5 out of 5 (12 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Worth the Wait"
Sound: The tone is full and warm for jazz or you can open the bridge pick up for some tasty blues licks. I love this guitar. Feature: It's the basic jazz box. No bells and whistles. Great tone and playability and it is beautiful. Ease of Use: Its simplicity makes it all the more glamourous. The guitar is very playable and you can feel the guitar resonate against your body as you play. The neck is perfect for me personally. The action was good but was a little high for me out of the box. It was quickly adjusted after adding a set of flatwound 12s and lowering the action. The guitar comes equipped with 10s. Quality: The product is well made as expected for a guitar of this price. Mine has no visible flaws and is a work of art. Value: Regardless of the price, I've waited a long time to purchase this guitar. I'm not getting any younger and I wish I had done it sooner. If you can afford one, don't waste anymore time. Just buy it. You won't be disappointed. Manufacturer Support: All of my Gibson guitars (3 Les Pauls, 137 and 335) have never given me any issues. I don't anticipate any problems with the 175. The Wow Factor: Can't put it down. Overall: One of the best guitars I've ever owned. In 1973 I had the option to buy this or a Les Paul Recording and chose the LP as I was playing rock and blues. (Didn't know Steve Howe was using one at the time.) I finally got the opportunity to get the ES 175 and I was not disappointed. It's a great guitar that is playable out of the box. This is a beautiful instrument

Sound: The sound is good, but doesn't have that toneful woody pop that you get from an L5 or L4. For the price it's a great instrument because the next higher level is almost 50% more. If you are familiar with Gibson 57's then you know the sound. I play mine through a 1966 Fender Pro Reverb and it sings. Live at high volume it will resonate and feed back, but chances are you are playing Jazz and don't have the need to crank. The tone is predictable and nice, just what you would expect from it. Feature: It's basic; 2 pickups, 2 volume and 2 tone. It's what it has always been, and you don't need anything else. It's a jazz box. ALthough it would be nice if Gibson would offer a Bigsby option so you could gently modulate chords. Ease of Use: Huh? Plug it in and play; it's a guitar. It's very playable. The action sets up very low and fast. Quality: Nearly all Gibsons have some sort of cosmetic blemish. They are usually very tiny and you don't notice them unless you look closely. That's because they aren't made in some automated factory. Real people touch these and every one is unique, has it's own personality and sound, and I wouldn't have it any other way. When you own a Gibson you'll never need to buy another one because they last a lifetime. Value: There's only one way to get a Gibson, and that's to buy a Gibson. Yeah, they are pricey, but there's something about a Gibson that you instantly feel, some sort of magic that makes it what it is. No other affordable guitar feels this way. Over time your pricey Gibson will most likely be worth more than you paid for it. Manufacturer Support: Gibson is one of the few companies that really does stand behind their products. The Lifetime Warranty is real. You can call their help line and they will help. I'm convinced that they love these guitars as much as the people that buy them do. The Wow Factor: The ES175 is a great guiter, and so are the offshoots that Gibson made of the model. It's a guitar that will make you feel good about owning it, every time you open the case. Overall: If you have it set up correctly you should never be dissatisfied with it. If I lost mine today I would be shopping around for another one tomorrow. For the price this guitar is a best value. Sure, you can buy other brands for less but they aren't the same thing and you'll wish you had bought the real thing.
