An exceptionally cool, Custom Color Gibson ES-175, this guitar features a very rare “black” finish! As a 1968 model, this instrument also includes the Gibson branded pickguard, which along with the chrome hardware and “back” finish give this instrument a truly unique look. The original patent number humbuckers and fully hollow body are perfect for everything from mellow jazz tones to screaming rock and blues tones. A great playing neck makes this a phenomenal choice for any player while collectors will appreciate the rarity of the finish and inclusion of the original hangtags and hardshell case.
