A BIT OF HISTORY

The ES-175 was the first Gibson electric guitar to feature a Florentine cutaway beneath the neck, giving easy access to all 20 frets. It also had a carved rosewood bridge. For itís first four years the model came with one single-coil P-90 pickup. In the early Ď50s, more and more models were produced and sold, indicating the ES-175ís rapid rise in popularity. In 1953, a two-pickup model was introduced, available in either sunburst or natural finish. The guitar received an update in 1957 when its design incorporated two humbucking pickups.
