Gibson / 1959 ES175 VOS Reissue / Tobacco Sunburst / Guitar For Sale
From the esteemed Memphis factory, the Gibson 1959 ES-175D reissue feels every bit as good as the genuine vintage articles and has a tone reminiscent of one of the most famous archtop electric guitars. No detail went overlooked in recreating this guitar, from the tip of the headstock packed with Kluson tulip tuners to the very base of the zig-zag tailpiece. A pair of Memphis Historic Spec humbuckers nail the sound of original PAF pickups and perfectly transmit the warm, wide sound of this famous hollow body. In a stunning Vintage Burst, the 1959 ES-175D gets the "VOS" treatment to subtly age the guitar and give it the look of a well cared-for instrument from the golden era of Gibson. This guitar is in excellent condition and comes in it’s original Custom Shop Gibson hard case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
