Many players agree that ES175 eached its full potential in 1959, leading up to that Gibson replaced the its original P-90s with PAF humbucking pickups and designed a new rounded, ultra-comfortable neck profile. The Gibson 1959 ES175 Historic Hollowbody Electric Guitar recreates this vintage classic with Gibson’s proprietary nitrocellulose lacquer finish and VOS process for a gently aged look. The nickel hardware exhibits a mellow, aged patina to recreate the entire look sound and feel of the Historic 1959 ES175.

To recreate the 1959 ES175, Gibson Custom Memphis employs all the tonewoods, components and constructional details that helped to make the original legendary. The body, designed by Gibson to reduce feedback in a full-depth archtop, is made from three-ply plain maple with an AAA plain maple top face. From the pointed Florentine cutaway, to the solid maple rims with replica cotton rim stays, to the precise binding dimensions and colors, every effort has been made to ensure the look of the 1959 ES175 is dead-on.
