    1959 Gibson ES-175 Sunburst Hollow Body Electric Guitar, #A 26872. Beautiful 50's Gibson guitar! Deep body with single cutaway. Original PAF pickup, volume and tone controls. Neck and frets are in great shape. Newer nylon nut. Original single-line Klusons need to have their plastic tulip buttons replaced as they are crumpling. Area of finish near lower E-string area back of headstock is marred probably from a heat gun. Amateur probably tried to remove crumpling plastic buttons and then dropped the project. Proper way is to take tuners off of the guitar before replacing buttons. Tailpiece has been repainted in aluminum paint and has original 3 mounting screws replaced with slotted screws. No extra holes. Rest of guitar is super clean with superficial scratches and light playing wear. Hard case. Condition: Very Good+
