The Gibson ES-175D first appeared in 1953, as a two P-90 pickup version of the single pickup ES-175 introduced in 1949. In 1957, Gibson added their all-new humbucking pickups to the ES-175, along with much of the rest of their lineup. Over the years, the Gibson ES-175D has become known as just the ES-175.

Gibson ES-175D, 1965  (consignment) No Longer Available

Here is a lovely Gibson ES-175D from 1965. It’s in good condition and sounds great. Cherry lacquer sunburst finishes fade in a very attractive manner, and this one is no exception.

The ES-175 was introduced in 1949 as a lower cost, electric version of the L-4, and was the first Gibson electric to feature the pointed ‘Florentine’ cutaway. It’s been in production ever since. Until 1953, the ES-175 was a single pickup guitar; at that point a second pickup was added and the guitar became the ES-175D. In 1957, the new Gibson humbuckers were added.
