Gibson / ES 175 D / 1969 / Ice Tea Sunburst / Guitar
100% originalguitar in exceptionally fine conditions. '60s-style features: nicely figured laminated maple body finished in the typical ‘iced-tea sunburst’ used in the late '60s.One piece mahogany neck. Old-style Gibson logo with open ‘b’ and ‘o’ no dot on the ‘i’. Kluson Deluxe ‘double-line/double-ring’ tuners. Two ‘patent-number’ pickups (the bridge unit has lost its label), perfectly original and untoched, chrome covers never dissoldered. The neck unit has been reinstalled after being replaced for some time by another pickup, but now it's back in place, the only trace of this job being a cut and then re-soldered wire. All-original hardware: the chrome-plated trapeze tailpiece with its zig-zag pattern, the ‘reflector’ style knobs, the adjustable rosewood bridge, the five-ply plastic pickguard. This beautiful instrument is in super-fine conditions and sounds as great as it looks, with the classic Gibson sound that ranges from jazzy warmth to more versatile voices, with that touch of bluesy grit that can be delivered with the complicity of a tube amp. A truly spectacular guitar, strong and clean, original and in perfect conditions, which comes with its original yellow-lined black hardshell case, in great shape as well. 52 pictures online at www.realvintage.it
