Gibson Memphis have been producing guitars of the highest quality for over 50 years now. As the go to guys for professional players, their instruments have been played on some of the biggest hits of all time.
The ES-175 debuted in 1949 and has remained the world's favourite jazz box ever since. The 2016 Gibson Custom ES-175 continues the proud line of this timeless classic. With a stunning figured Maple top and back, in the classic single cutaway design, it's finished in a Natural high-gloss nitro cellulose lacquer. Perfect for sweeping jazz licks, this guitar looks a million dollars.
Benefitting from a rounded C profile neck and a 12"radius, the Mahogany neck with Rosewood fingerboard is comfortable, poised and so very familiar. Featuring Gibson's split parallelogram inlays it has a real vintage appeal.
Loaded with a set of the legendary Classic 57 pickups, the 2016 ES-175 offers more than just well-rounded jazz tones. The '57s deliver superb vintage PAF tones as if direct from the '50s. These pups are versatile, balanced and ready to rock.
