The ES-175 debuted in 1949. With a comfortable body size and stylish pointed cutaway, it quickly became the most popular guitar of the jazz world. The transparent finishes (sunburst with gold hardware or antique natural with nickel) on a laminated maple body always remind you that you're touching wood. Binding on the top, back, and fretboard, combined with a trapeze tailpiece and parallelogram fretboard inlays, provides a big touch of class. Traditional Gibson design and 2 '57 Classic humbuckers dish out huge helpings of tone. Includes hardshell case.
