❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES-175D Archtop Electric Mahogany Sunburst, 1989

In production from 1953 to 2016 and the successor to the 1949 single pickup ES-175, the Gibson ES-175D was perhaps the best accepted archtop electric. While found in many genres of music, from jazz to early rock and roll, from pop to arena rock, it is most associated with the many jazz guitarists who built careers with it.
