Honoring the long tradition of Gibson's great jazz guitars.

The 2018 Gibson ES-275 Custom in Sunset Burst finish is a reinvented classic archtop designed with the modern player in mind. Honoring the long tradition of Gibson's great jazz guitars in looks, tone and feel, the ES-275 Custom offers players of any musical genre a timeless instrument with modern functionality.

For improved access to the 22 fret dark rosewood fretboard, the thinline body design features a single rounded cutaway. The Grover "Milk Bottle" Rotomatic tuners and pinned ABR-1 bridge with titanium saddles offer precise intonation and tuning stability.

    Comments about Gibson 2018 ES-275 Custom Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

    As long as you are not into metal, this guitar will do anything you want. Put flatwounds on it and it will sound as warm as a 175, but flip the switch and fiddle with the knobs and you can get screaming blues, rock, twangy rockabilly, or anything in between. The action and neck are fast, the body size perfect for anyone who doesn't like the bulk of a 175. Fit and finish are flawless, only things that can possibly be considered a minus are tuning sensitivity to temperature/humidity changes, (but not surprising as it is a hollowbody archtop) and lack of finish options.

    This is the best thing Gibson has come up with since the Les Paul.

        Comments about Gibson 2018 ES-275 Custom Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

        I expected a jazz box sound. I returned the guitar, I could not make it sound better than my Gretsch 5422 or my American Strat. Workmanship was not what I expected from Gibson. You could see the glue dripping from poorly installed nut. I have many guitars, I would not hesitate to purchase the guitar used if I had not other guitars and got it a great used price, otherwise the ES175 is a tried and true beast.
