❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES-175 VOS 1959 Reissue Sunburst, 2016

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES-175 VOS 1959 Reissue Sunburst, 2016

The Gibson ES-175 VOS 1959 Reissue brought back the 1959 version of the classic single humbucking pickup, working player’s jazz guitar. Introduced in 1949 as a 16 inch wide, fully hollow single cutaway electric, the Gibson ES-175 first carried a single P-90 pickup in the neck position. In 1953, the ES-175D was launched with a second pickup, and that became the most popular configuration throughout the 175’s production.

This Cherry Red Gibson Memphis ES-335 dates to February 7, 2015 and was built at the now-closed Memphis plant. While that plant is closed, the ES-335 is still in production, but the ‘standard’ ES-335 comes with dot position markers; the block markers seen here are now found on the “Figured – Sixties Cherry” version. This example has a relatively plain top and back, but does not have the ‘P’ – for plain – designation in the model number.
