Gibson (used, 1981) ES-175D in Natural Electric Archtop

Tag No 32-4154 Used

#80981030, in excellent condition with an Epiphone hard shell case.

16” wide, with a scale length of 24 ¾” and a nut width of 1-11/16, made in Kalamazoo, Michigan this guitar has a  laminated maple body, laminated maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard and bridge. 

Hardware includes trapeze tailpiece with raised-parallelogram crossbar; compensated tuneamatic bridge; Gibson humbucking pickups and electronics; beveled 5-ply pickguard; black bonnet knobs; 3 way control switch, adjustable compensated Tunematic bridge; Gibson logo tulip key tuners.

This is very clean except for one finger tip-sized spot of finish rub on the back of the neck behind the 8th fret.  Otherwise this ES-175 shows very little wear; some little scratches and dings on the back and some minor finish checking on the sides.    We note that the pot can under the bridge pickup tone pot is missing.  We suspect that it was shipped out from the factory this way; the fact that it is missing does not affect the value or playability of the guitar.  

As you know, the ES-175 has held an important role in the professional lives of Pat Metheny, Steve Howe, Herb Ellis and, of course, Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day.    This guitar fulfills the dream of the working jazz practitioner who needs to get the finest sound possible out of a modestly priced vintage instrument.  

Our Price is $2,899.00.
