ES-175 D

1966 VINTAGE GIBSON ES-175D  2 x humbucker. Original
Sunburst finish-faded top, with original pickguard and hardware, pickups, tuners tailpiece etc.
Some nice lacquer checking age patina shows it’s the real deal. Older pro-refret VGC
Original Hardcase VGC

Notes: Tuners had been changed at some stage, Original tuners now fitted. The pickups have been modified with coil tap and both volume pots are now push/pull type for an increased variation and choice of sound selection and tone. It sounds just they way a 175 should sound plus more when single coil sounds are required.
Overall cosmetically very good condition. The fading of the sunburst top gives it a unique orange-nutmeg  hue which really stands out.

There are a few really minor and acceptable nicks and marks on here and there and a couple on the back of the neck. I feel the pictures display the condition well and I can add the playability is certainly fine.

You will notice the strap button in the photo of the heel of the neck has been moved slightly. I am happy to correct that and move it back to where it should be for the buyer. A small timber fill and lacquer drop will make that almost unnoticeable.


A straight neck , great low action. Requires no work to be done at all.
