The Gibson ES-175 is one of the longest serving members of the Gibson family. Not only does it predate the ES-335, but also the Les Paul! Re-issued for 2016, this classic is getting a modern touch up with a stunning figured Maple top and top grade hardware that gives you the best performance possible.

The ES-175 has long been the king of archtop jazz box electric guitars for its singing warmth and articulate tone.

The AAA-figured maple top of this guitar immediately give it a striking stage presence, contrasted by the elegance of a venetian-style cutaway. The 175 body is reminiscent to a 'mini' jumbo acoustic, with a wider body bout that offers up amazing projection and natural volume.

A pair of '57 classic humbuckers re-create original 1957 PAF tone that really start to sing once you crank up the gain. The tonal response and pickup system on the 2016 ES-175 is a true testament to Gibson's attention to detail, each pickup meticulously researched and developed to create authentic 50's tone. You can expect sweet and smooth blues tones as well as large open clean sounds that work perfectly for Jazz. The aesthetic appointments continue with striking binding that outlines every part of the guitar except for the iconic Gibson headstock. And mother-of-pearl split-parallelogram inlays are expertly inlaid in the rich rosewood fretboard.

Players as legendary as Steve Howe, Joe Pass, and Pat Metheny have helped define the sound of jazz on guitars just like this ES-175!
