Gibson ES-175 Cutaway Archtop Electric Guitar Sunburst, 1969

Gibson ES-175 Cutaway Archtop Electric Guitar Sunburst, 1969

The Gibson ES-175 cutaway came onto the scene in 1949 as a single pickup archtop with a sharp florentine cutaway and Maple laminate body construction. The most popular electric archtop at the time was the ES-150, with carved spruce top and carved Maple back. The laminate construction of the new ES-175 was not only more affordable, but also offered better feedback resistance.

Epiphone Granada E444T Thinline Archtop Sunburst, 1965

Epiphone Granada E444T Thinline Archtop Sunburst, 1965

The Epiphone Granada E444T is much like the Gibson ES-125T, and was built in the Gibson Kalamazoo plant from 1962 to 1970. A non-cutaway thinline archtop, the Granada E444T has a large plastic plate that mounts the controls and a Melody Maker style single coil pickup. The sunburst nitrocellulose lacquer finish has faded nicely, and there is natural checking around the instrument. There are a few small dings and scratches on the back, but otherwise it is in good condition.
