1960 Gibson ES-175

1960 Gibson ES-175

Here's a real gem of a guitar! 1960 Gibson ES-175 in stunning sunburst finish!


This instrument is completely original and in excellent condition. A 34XXX serial and an R FON (1960). Accompanied by an original strap, chord, case key & set of strings this example is all there. Both PAF's have full perfectly centered stickers and have never been out of the guitar. The cans remain over the pots and the wiring/electronics again remain factory perfect. 


The original frets (nibs still present) are in terrific shape with at least 70% life remaining. The sunburst finish is radiant with very light play-wear and essentially no checking. 

There isn't anything this ole "jazz box" can't do, she can sing you the blues and rock out with the best of them. Set up perfectly this instrument really is a gem.

The remaining pure 175's out there are the least expensive way to get into a Golden Era PAF loaded Gibson.


We've had dozens of 175's in over the years and this one is easily a top 3 example both aesthetically and sonically.
