Gibson Electric Guitars - 1954 ES-175


SOLD. Call us for options.

This vintage Gibson ES-175D is an absolutely superb archtop - one that plays and sounds phenomenally, and is a great collector's item. Here with a pair of P-90s, rather than the more common single pickup, it can achieve a wide array of tones - perfect for rock, blues, and jazz, it's a really versatile player. Constructed with a Maple body, it has a nice Florentine cutaway, a Mahogany neck, and a Rosewood fingerboard with 19 frets and split parallelogram inlays.

It has a 24.75" scale length and 1.687" nut width and is just an amazing player all around. It's in Excellent condition overall with some minor wear to its body, but for being over 60 years old it really looks great. Other features include a Rosewood floating bridge, Trapeze-style tailpiece with three accented raised parallelograms, a five-ply laminated pickguard, and cream binding throughout. A real stunner, this Gibson ES-175D would be an amazing addition to any archtop and Gibson enthusiast's collection. Includes original hardshell case.
