The Gibson ES-175 is one of the most iconic jazz guitars in history. This classic all-laminate jazz guitar was introduced in 1949 and was the first to feature a stylish Florentine cutaway. It's been played by many legendary guitarists including Joe Pass, Jim Hall, Pat Metheny, Herb Ellis and Steve Howe.
Here we have a very rare all-original 1953 Gibson ES-175 in blonde with a single P90 pickup. Condition is excellent and it's well set up. There are a couple of hairline cracks around the input jack - not uncommon for hollow bodied guitar of this age. According to the owner, it has been like this since he first got it over 14 years ago and has remained the same.
Includes original hardshell case.
