The comprehensive history of the legendary ES-175.
Debuting in 1949 and in continuous production ever since, the Gibson ES-175 is one of the most versatile and famous guitars in music history. The first Gibson electric guitar to feature a Florentine cutaway, the ES-175 was also one of the first electric Spanish guitars to be fitted with its signature P.A.F. ("Patent Applied For") humbuckers, and it is prized for its playability, craftsmanship, and full, rich tone. The list of players who have used the ES-175 guitar's distinctive sound reads like a who's who of historic and contemporary jazz, rock, blues, and fusion, with players such as Joe Pass, Kenny Burrell, Joe Diorio, Toots Thielmans, Wes Montgomery, Pat Martino, Herb Ellis, Howard Roberts, Jimmy Raney, blues great B.B. King, progressive rock musician Steve Howe and fusion pioneer Pat Metheny. Scotty Moore played an ES-295, essentially a dual-P90-equipped, all-gold ES-175 on the Sun Sessions with Elvis Presley. The Gibson 175 book was written by noted author and guitarist Adrian Ingram.
