About This Listing

All original 1968 Gibson ES 175 Hollow Body Guitar Natural. In excellent condition considering its age. Plays absolutely wonderfully and sounds amazing. The new ones just do not sound like this period. All original tuners, pickups, toggle switch, pots, bridge etc.. Original frets (still has nubs.). Plenty of fret life as this guitar has had flats I would imagine most if not all of its life. The frets on this particular model are somewhat low profile as is the case with Gibsons of this era. Has the narrower neck and nut of the late 60’s models and plays fast and effortlessly. Truss rod works as I tested it when I purchased the guitar several years back. I have never had to make an adjustment to this guitar in the years I have played and owned it. It’s a very stable.   There is a very small fracture in the bout near the neck joint. It has been there since I own it. At some point in the past this neck as been reset as is the case with most guitars of this age. Has been this way since I own it and as stated preciously this guitar has never needed an adjustment. Its rock solid.   The name “Billy” is inscribed in the truss rod cover. I never replaced it. I like the quirkiness of it. I don’t know who Billy is but I played his guitar for many years happily. I am downsizing the collection and moving and this beauty doesn’t get played anymore. Non original hardshell case included.
