1967 Gibson ES-175D – Natural

$ 6000.00

1967 ES-175D. If you’re here, you know what you’re looking at.

Old natural refinish, reportedly this guitar was originally sunburst. The refinish is nitro and it’s beautifully done. There are a few minor signs of wear by the binding on the back, which are pictured. They are beneath the finish and are not structurally relevant. No cracks or splits, and the headstock is firmly attached with no prior repair. There is a small crack in the plastic bezel around the neck pickup which has some old glue in it and is now structurally sound. The original upper strap button has been moved to the heel of the neck, the old hole is filled beneath the finish. The original tuners have been replaced.

Otherwise, all the pickups/bezels/pots/knobs/bridge/trapeze/pickguard are all original.

This guitar plays beautifully with a nice low action. Frets are in excellent condition. Intonation is great, better than one might expect from a bridge with such limited adjustment. The pickups sound lovely with that familiar archtop warmth.

Comes with the pictured, non-original hardshell case.
