The latest from Gibson Custom Memphis are these dead-nuts replicas of the legendary 1959 ES-175 hollowbody electric guitar.  The ES-175 is one of the most famous jazz guitars in history, and now you can get your very own with period correct features right down to the “Zig Zag” tailpiece.  Two models will be available; the single pickup and double pickup (shown above).  Also your choice of Vintage Burst and Vintage Natural finishes.  We’re taking pre-orders now, with prices starting at $4,499.00 including hardshell case.
