Sit down and marvel at this vintage 1959 Gibson ES-175. A guitar that takes its scotch with 3 ice cubes at the Heartbreak Hotel, the ES-175 originally debuted in 1949 and was the first Gibbo to feature a Florentine cutaway, it found much favour in its different incarnations with the likes of Herb Ellis, Steve Howe, and was the basis for the mind-bending Scotty Moore ES-295. This one comes from an exciting period, in that the model had only begun to be fitted with full humbuckers in ‘57, a trend that continues to the present day, and a bit of departure from the original, solitary single-coil model that began its journey. Built around a 3” deep body, the laminate top is Maple/Poplar/Maple in construction, with Mahogany back and sides pairing to a Mahogany neck, which is topped with a bound Rosewood fingerboard. Inlaid with brilliantly-aged parallelograms, this guitar has some of the most handsome checking you’ve seen in years, with the headstock aging like the gruff gentleman that it is. The originals tuners have been replaced with a set of appropriately-buttoned Grover Deluxe units, though the rest of the guitar remains original. That includes those full-fat potent humbuckers, wired through two pairs of independent Volume and Tone controls and a three-way toggle in the classic Gibson style. To say this is a find isn’t really going far enough, so come to Wunjo Electric and indulge in this formidable instrument immediately!
