For sale is a 2008 Gibson ES-175 Arch Top in Black with the original case. This modern recreation of the Gibson's iconic Jazz box is 100% American made in Memphis, TN. It shares the body and construction of a classic ES-175 with two notable exceptions: the pickups and the bridge. For the first time since the 50s, the iconic ES-175 is back with P-94s. These sharp-looking pickups have been calibrated with 10K winding on the neck position pickup and 10.5K windings on the bridge position pickup. Both pickups have Alnico 2 magnets and the bridge pickup is reverse wound for reverse polarity so they are hum-canceling when they are both on. The second special feature is the bridge. Never before has the ES-175 come with a factory-installed Bigsby. This guitar is in very good condition and in perfect working order. There are some light scratches and that is it. Overall, I would rate the condition a solid 9.5 out of 10. Everything on the guitar is original. There are no cracks, repairs, or issues. The neck is straight with no issues. The original frets are in excellent condition with no wear. There is no buzzing or dead spots. The original case works great.
