The Gibson ES-175 is perhaps the most iconic hollowbody archtop electric guitar ever built and a favorite of jazz guitarists everywhere. The ES-175D denotes a two-pickup model, originally with dual P-90s and then switching to PAF humbuckers in 1957.

This guitar is in amazing condition and the original PAF humbuckers sound killer. There has been a bigsby added, and the work was done very well, looks like it was original.
