    Description

    1953 Gibson ES-175 Sunburst Archtop Electric Guitar, #A-13645. Herb Ellis owned and played guitar. Several videos of Herb playing prove significant match. Weather checked bright finish appears to be a combination of over spray and refinish. Sides and neck are black. Top and back have traditional Gibson sunburst. Original P-90 pickups but have been changed to unknown chrome cover Humbucker. Bridge is converted to modern Tunomatic. "Von Epps" string damper added to headstock. Professionally re-fretted to jumbo frets. Obviously a good working musicians guitar. Hard case included. Condition: Good.
