Lush looks and quintessential jazz tone.

This legendary archtop features laminated maple/poplar/maple for the top, back & sides. Period-correct features include two '57 Classic humbuckers that deliver smooth, Patent-Applied-For tone. The mahogany neck has a comfortable rounded C profile with rolled fretboard binding for superb playing feel. Other appointments include an Historic truss rod, vintage-style "No Logo" potentiometers and quartered Adirondack spruce braces for vintage ES tonality. It's been enhanced with Gibson's VOS treatment that gives the finish and hardware a slightly aged appearance as if it was virtual old stock. Includes hardshell case.

    Comments about Gibson 1959 ES-175D VOS Hollow Body Electric Guitar:

    High quality build. Amazing tone. Mine plays like butter. The MHS pickups sound anazing. I can't put this 175 down. So lively and rich sounding. I have heard that Gibson Memphis quality is not consistent of late, but mine is a gem. Thank you Gibson for hitting it out of the park on this one.
