About This Listing

1958 Gibson ES-175 in original blond finish.
Only 66 of these we shipped during the year 1958.
The guitar is in good shape and plays very well.
The neck is straight and the guitar plays clearly up and down the fret board.
The guitar originally may have had a Charlie Christian pickup on it.
The adjustment holes for mounting the pickup have been professionally filled, finished and lacquered to match the guitar pretty well.
The pickup is a dog eared P90 that was added in the 80's or 90's.
Is is a good sounding pickup with generous output.
The tone and volume controls are original and the pots date to 1958.
They actuate well without any scratching or popping.
The bridge and tailpiece are also original.
There is an additional strap button hole and a couple of small breaks in the binding on the neck but it is solid.
There is a small piece of binding that has been replaced between the 12th and 14th frets on the players side of the neck.
There is surface checking all over the instrument and a few nicks and dents.
The guitar also has a gentile stinger or black painted rear of the headstock.  It appears original as the lacquer checking resembles the checking on the rest of the guitar.
There are a set of original vintage Epiphone Tulip style tuners that were added some time ago which work well and look really cool on the instrument.  
An overall very clean player grade instrument with an older cream colored hard case with gold appointments and combination lock.
The guitar is available to play M-Sat 11-5 at Pearl Guitars in NW Portland.
