SOLD - Gibson ES-175D 1956 Blonde

Shipping calculated at checkout.

This guitar is 110% buttery goodness.  Everyone around the shop is smitten.  

The guitar is all original with the exception of a refret, which was nicely done.  Everything else is completely original and there are no other repairs, overspray or issues.  Even the pickguard is original!  The case too!  

The guitar was played, but well cared for.  There is some fretboard wear down low in the scale, but not dramatically so.  The front of the headstock shows some string scratches.  There is some arm discoloration on the lower bout, but not deep or dark.  The back of the neck is deliciously worn.  

I'm not going to try to describe to you the amazing, rich and versatile tone other than to say that it is heavenly.  You'll see.  It's nuts!
