1956 Gibson ES-175-D
Sometimes instruments come into the shop that completely take your breath away, and when I first saw this absolutely stunning 1956 Gibson Es-175-D, I needed to sit down.
The ES-175 was the equally at home in the hands of jazz players such as Joe Pass, Jim Hall, and Pat Metheny as well as rockers such as Steve Howe.
With wear and mojo in all the right places, this guitar is a sight to behold and a treat to play and here.
The original rosewood bridge is tucked away in the case, allowing for the newer ABR-1 bridge to provide perfect intonation up the neck.
