Gibson 1959 ES-175DN 2014 – Natural

$ 5303.08

Hard to find Gibson Memphis 1959 ES-175DN in Vintage Natural.

These guitars are a detailed reproduction of the classic 1959 design (including no serial number on the back of the head stock).

This particular guitar is in excellent condition. Only played at home and never gigged. Small scratches and minor play wear only.

Comes with COA and original hard shell case.
I am open to sensible offers.

A few years ago I had a pair of brand new Gibson Classic ’57 humbuckers professionally installed. I prefer the sound of these over the MHS pickups (and the aging on the originals was a bit over the top). The original pick ups come with the guitar.
