Gibson ES 175 CC - 1952

S/N A-11653

Built: 1952

CC = Original Charlie Christian One Rail / Blade Singlecoil

These three screws beneath the strings clamp the big magnet of this original typ of CC Pickup

Everything is original except the potiknobs and the tuners. The holes for the new tuners are not enlarged. The old tuners are not encluded

It's an old guitar and you can really see the natural aging of the lacquering.

This guitar was played over the years and you can see that. But it's not rocked. (Like me :-), I was born 1952)

The frets are original and you can see some string marks. See the last foto on my homepage.

The playability is still perfect. Strings in moment are Thomastik-Infeld Swing .012-.050.

The top is not sunken: The main thing that I describe this guitar as "good condition" is the tension of the wood. The vibrancy of top and bottom is still perfect. I have seen some other guitars of this age, where the top was sunken and the resonance sounded like cardboard

Neckprofil: bigger C.
1. fret: 21,6mm
10. fret: 25mm

EURO 4.990,00 (MWSt/VAT cannot be separated)
