The Gibson ES-175 was introduced in 1949 as the companies mid level electric arch top, as a more affordable option to the high end L5 models, and remained the companies flagship deep body electric arch top for 70 years. This model from 1988 is a wonderful example of a more modern ES-175, equipped with a set of Classic '57 Humbuckers and featuring the more sought after natural finish. This guitar is constructed from a carved Maple top with Mahogany back and sides which was a feature introduced between 1983 and 1990 for these reissue models. This guitar features a comfortable, slim neck profile with a crown peg head inlay and the typical split parallelogram fingerboard inlay.
