1968 Gibson ES-175D
- Sunburst
EX; beautiful sunburst finish w/ very little finish checking (only on top); some figuring on beautiful back; original Pat.# (with decal) pickups; chrome PU covers; correct bridge says ’Gibson pat.no.2.740.313’ under it, has retaining wire and correct metal saddles; the rosewood bridge portion has been secured with 2 little brass screws; spiral tailpiece is chrome plated, no pitting at all; neck width is 1 9/16 (thin); tuners are earlier original type ’Kluson Deluxes’, one has a bent shaft (these are worth $200 alone; ’Gibson Deluxe’ started in ’68); frets are new; witchhat knobs (gold foil inserts); OHSC is in good condition, replaced handle, but clean inside. This is an extremely clean guitar and it has you checking everything because it looks ’too good to be that old’. The back of neck is near perfect! Sam Ash did a refret (very nicely) in 2003.
