Smooth, elegant, and sophisticated.
The ES-175 debuted in 1949. With a comfortable body size and stylish pointed cutaway, it quickly became the most popular guitar of the jazz world. The transparent finish on a laminated maple body always reminds you that you're touching wood. Binding on the top, back, and fretboard, combined with a trapeze tailpiece and parallelogram fretboard inlays, provides a big touch of class. Traditional Gibson design and 2 '57 Classic humbuckers dish out huge helpings of tone. Includes hardshell case.

I brought this guitar brand new and think this guitar is really over-priced. my guitar has a very sticky finish on the neck (noticeable after playing for a while), the nickel plating tarnishes too easily and the over-all sound is not that great. I recommend buying a 52 reissue Telecaster if you want a good sounding guitar and play Jazz. Save your money!
I owned this guitar's big brother, the 775, which had real ebony volume and tone knobs, an ebony fret board, multi-ply abalone binding front and back on the body, fret board and peg head, plus it was made with 75-year-old wood. In a word, it was perfect. This 175 is almost as good, that's why I only gave it an 8. This guitar has a very smooth action, not as smooth as my ebony 775, but it's close. Just be careful if you play through a very powerful amp, like I do. it will feed back something fierce if you get too close. Don't laugh, it sounds awesome through a Marshall Mode 4.
The price, well..., it's obvious we all complaint because it's too price, but in this present times, quality is more expensive than ever.
