We are proud to offer a 1957 Gibson ES-175. Serial number A25639. This is a fine collector's grade instrument, about as good as it gets. This guitar is clean...very clean. It has one original PAF humbucker pickup. This is the earliest of Gibson humbucking pickups, without a sticker, a proto PAF. These are different than the later PAF's. It sounds more like a P-90 on steroids: big, fat, and clear, but without the hum. It's pretty amazing that this guitar still has the original pickup. An original '57 PAF is one of the most sought after pickups on the planet! The neck is big, like all 1957 Gibsons, and it feels great. Original Kluson tuners: the same ones you'd see on an original '59 Les Paul. The pickguard is replaced, and the first 5 frets have been professionally replaced. Other than that, it is all original. No cracks. No structural issues. It's clean and nice. A strong excellent condition. It's just so, so cool. Beautiful patina. I get this great image of Joe Pass playing this guitar. In many ways (really in all ways), this is the ultimate jazz guitar. I hate to confine this guitar to just one genre of music because it's a great guitar period, for all styles of music. It's just a stunning instrument. Non-original hardshell case.
