    Product Description

    A recreation of the 1959 ES175, the Gibson 1959 ES175 Historic Electric Guitar features a design to reduce feedbackthat you get in full-depth archtop guitars. Featuring a three-ply plain maple body, AAA plain maple top, and a Florentine cutaway, this ES175 stays true to the original with solid maple rims, replica cotton rim stays, precise binding dimensions and period accurate colors. Loaded with a dual set of Aged ’57 Classic humbuckers the 1959 ES175’s has an accurate voice thanks to original-spec 500k CTS potentiometers with Bumble Bee tone capacitors, adding the warmth, depth, edge and articulation that made PAFs famous.

    Gibson 1959 ES175 Historic Electric Guitar Features

    • Fully Hollow Body With Maple/Poplar/Maple, Hot Pressed Top and Back
    • Mahogany Neck with Maple Spline
    • Hand-selected Dark Rosewood Fingerboard
    • TonePros Kluson Tuners with Tulip Buttons
    • Original Spec ‘Zig Zag’ Tailpiece
    • '57 Classic Humbucker Pickups
    • Includes Gibson Memphis Case and Certificate of Authenticity

    The set neck is made from solid mahogany with a bound rosewood fingerboard inlaid with characteristic split-parallelogram position markers. Carved to a comfortably rounded late ’50s profile with hand-rolled binding, it exudes the playing feel of a well-aged classic. A mother-of-pearl Gibson logo and crown inlay grace the headstock, along with a set of vintage-style, single-line TonePros tuners with amber tulip buttons. The hardware complement is completed by a multi-ply ES175 pickguard, traditional floating rosewood bridge, and a correct ‘zig-zag’ trapeze tailpiece made on the original building forms, previously lost for decades.

    Original late ’50s ES175s benefited from the glorious tone of some of the most revered pickups ever created, Gibson’s hallowed “PAF” humbuckers, and Gibson Memphis goes all out to achieve that sound in this recreation of the classic. A dual set of Aged ’57 Classic humbuckers accurately transmits the 1959 ES175’s acoustic voice, while adding the warmth, depth, edge and articulation that made PAFs famous in the first place. They are wired through original-spec 500k CTS potentiometers with ‘Bumble Bee’ tone capacitors, and a three-way switch on the two-pickup guitars with original style rubber grommet. All together this guitar breathtakingly recreates the total look, feel and sound of the highly prized original, and represents one of the most comfortable, playable historic guitar reproductions Gibson has provided the market in years.

    Each guitar comes protected in a plush-lined hardshell case with black exterior and charcoal interior, and includes Gibson Memphis Certificate of Authenticity, owner’s manual and adjustment literature, and protection by Gibson’s Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 customer service.
