Gibson ES 175 Reissue Reviews 5

I always liked the look of these guitars and I got this one from ebay. I won the bid for 1500.00.

It has a tobacco sunburst with one sharp cutaway, 2 57/PAF classic humbuckers, and the easiest playing guitar I ever played. The tone changes with every minimum move of the controls and is so sweet.

Unplugged it is not loud but still gives a good sound.
