Gibson Custom ES-175 Reissue Hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
Rich in history, rich in tone
The Gibson Custom ES-175 hollowbody electric guitar serves up the rich, sultry tones you can only get from a '50s Gibson "jazzbox." The ES-175 was introduced in 1949 as an innovative solution to amplifying archtop guitars. In 1959, with the addition of an updated rounded neck profile and PAF humbucking pickups, the ES-175 earned its place as a first choice for jazz guitar. With a three-ply maple body (and AAA plain maple top), mahogany neck, and a bound rosewood fingerboard, this impeccable ES-175 reissue sports the same tonewoods that made the ES-175 perfect for smoky jazz tones - as well as updated, state-of-the-art '57 Classic pickups suitable to a wide range of music styles. With accurate details like its florentine cutaway and vintage-style hardware, the Gibson Custom ES-175 hollowbody embodies the very soul of jazz guitar - but this axe can flex its muscles cross-genre (think: Pat Metheny).
You'll treasure this guitar for a lifetime
When you pick up the Gibson Custom 1959 ES-175 hollowbody, you're holding one of the most definitive jazz guitars money can buy. In fact, the ES-175 is so popular with players worldwide, that it's one of the few Gibson models that has been in constant production since its introduction in 1949. The combination of vibrant, organic tones, and exceptional playability, make the ES-175 a guitar you'll treasure for a lifetime.
Gibson Custom's commitment to quality
Gibson's Custom Shop took extra care with every detail of the ES-175. Every Gibson Custom guitar receives an ultra-precise Plek Pro setup, which optimizes the fretboard and nut for incredibly accurate intonation and a "just right" feel. And little touches like the adjustable rosewood/ABR bridge and the 17-degree headstock angle not only add to the amazing tone and feel, they remain true to the ES-175 as well as Gibson's history.
