Gibson ES-175 Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1991

Gibson ES-175 Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1991

The Gibson ES-175 archtop electric was in production from 1949 until 2017, because it does exactly what many jazz and rock guitarists needed it to do. Comfortable and reliable, the ES-175 delivers a rich tone and its laminate construction makes it feedback resistant, compared to carved solid top models. To that point, it did appear on large, higher volume rock stages, notably in the hands of Steve Howe of Yes. It was also a common choice for early rock and rockabilly artists.

Gibson ES-335TD Thinline Electric Guitar Walnut, 1975

Gibson ES-335TD Thinline Electric Guitar Walnut, 1975

The Gibson ES-335TD was an immediate hit at its 1958 introduction as a thinline, two pickup, double cutaway archtop electric. It addressed many of the needs professional guitarists had dealing with ever-increasing stage volumes while retaining the classic archtop tone profile. Over the years, the specs have changed somewhat, but the model has remained in constant production and has been seen and heard on countless stages and studios.

Gibson J-45 Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Sunburst, 1948

Gibson J-45 Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Sunburst, 1948

The Gibson J-45 appeared in 1942, displacing a couple of earlier models, and was hit but was itself quickly hit with wartime material restrictions. The straight bridge seen on this example used less material, and was mostly gone by 1947 in favour of the ‘belly bridge’. Some wartime examples did not have adjustable truss rods, depending on whether the shop had received or run out of their allotment of rod material. The gold Gibson decal firmly places this example to 1947 or later.   On the back of the head, there’s a small ‘Made in USA’ stamp, which indicates that this instrument was intended for export from the USA.
