Gibson ES175 Single Pickup Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1966

Gibson ES175 Single Pickup Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1966

One of the classic musical workhorses, the Gibson ES175 single pickup guitar made its debut in 1949 with a P-90 at the neck, with the pickup updated to the all-new humbucker in 1957. In 1952, the ES175D (for Double pickup) appeared, with a second pickup in the bridge position. These guitars were immediate hits with professional players and serious amateurs in many genres – Jazz, Pop, and Country were the most common and the ES-175 was a standard for jazz players from its introduction until being recently discontinued.

PRS Standard Solidbody Tobacco Sunburst, 1987

The PRS Standard appeared in 1987 as an evolutionary step and as a model rename from the 1985 PRS model, with carved top, all Mahogany construction except for the 1o inch radius, 25 inch scale Rosewood fingerboard. Until 1991, Brazilian Rosewood was used for fingerboards on this model. Here we’re looking at a PRS Standard, built during 1987 in Stevensville, Maryland and sporting a dark tobacco sunburst model, which transitions to a darker red on the back and neck.

The Gibson ESDP 335 was a limited production model built at the now-closed Gibson Memphis plant, over the course of several years. The ESDP designation expands to “Electric Spanish Dot Neck Plain Top”, and is otherwise a standard ES-335 dot neck model. Gibson introduced the ES-335 as a new ground-breaking concept for their 1958 model year. Ted McCarty, then President of Gibson, had the idea to combine traditional arch top guitar tone with solid body sustain and feedback resistance.
