‼Reduced‼ Gibson ES-5 Archtop Electric Guitar Sunburst, 1949

The Gibson ES-5 appeared in 1949 and was the first ES – Electric Spanish – guitar with three pickups.   Originally equipped only with rotary pots for volume and tone controls, this model was revised in 1955 as the ES-5 Switchmaster.     Using a full size cutaway archtop body made with maple laminates for feedback rejection, the original ES-5 had individual volume controls and one master tone control.   Depending on the pot rotation, you could have all three pickups at any blend level.

SOLD!!! Gibson ES-175 Archtop Electric Guitar Sunburst, 1962

The Gibson ES-175 was immediately popular with jazz players. The body is constructed as a single florentine (sharp) cutaway, using maple laminates for feedback rejection. This was becoming increasingly important as audience sizes increased, requiring higher stage volumes that are seriously problematic for hollow body instruments. These work so well that eventually, an ES-175 built not long after this one wound up on some of the world’s largest rock stages in the hands of ‘Yes’ guitarist Steve Howe.
