Gibson / ES-175 / 1959 / Blonde / Guitar
This is a beautiful example of a hard to find model in a rare natural finish. 1959 is Gibson's most desirable year of production, and as such this guitar has that highly sought after neck profile, chunky and very comfortable. It's in great condition and plays like a dream, the front pickup is warm and rich, and the back pickup is raw and rocky - very versatile. The guitar is in excellent condition with a few modifications - the 1959 PAF pickups have been replaced with 1980 PAF's, the volume and tone controls are changed as are the pots, and the pickguard is also changed. With all original examples of '59 ES175's going for close to £10k this guitar is priced very competitively. It comes in a non original 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.
