Description

Man oh man, this is a fun one. We’re talking about a virtually all-original 1958 Gibson ES-175 (right down to the curlicue pickguard) with the original Gibson Lifton case, PAF pickup, tuners, bridge—on and on. We’ve gone over this one with a fine tooth comb to make sure everything is in order, and we’re very happy to say this one is on the up and up! It plays like butter with a chunky C neck, and the PAF screams when you dig in, and purrs when you don’t. More mojo than you can shake a pick at! It’s in amazing condition to boot (but please, keep those boots away from this vintage ES-175).
This is the kind of Gibson history you want to keep close at hand, at all times.

I have always loved these guitars. The ES-175 is a classic design with a big, fat sound that can also rock ‘n’ roll with if you put it through the right amplifier. This one has great action and perfect playability; it’s not only collectible but it’s one you’re going to want to play night after night.
