1959 Gibson ES-175D, sunburst. Made in USA, serial number A30802. This guitar has all replacement parts except for the pickguard, pickguard bracket and the pickup selector switch rubber ring. The electronics are high quality CTS 500k with vintage wax tone caps and 50s wiring. The pickups are a set of vintage Seymour Duncan 59s and they sound fantastic in this guitar. The Schaller tuners work incredibly smooth. The back of the neck was once oversprayed after the previous owner wore through the finish and even the overspray is now worn through in places. Why you wonder? This guitar has the iconic '59 neck profile, a dream to play. The frets were replaced at one point as well, the guitar also has some extra strap button holes, but no breaks or repairs. Also features a vintage Bigsby tremolo. Comes with a vintage hardshell case. Weighs only 3.15kg.
