For 65 years old this ES-175 is a real stunner. All of the original parts are here, pickup, tuners, bridge, tailpiece, wiring, everything. This guitar oozes tone and style. There are very few dings in this guitar. I have tried to picture the few that there are. The tailpiece was welded together, eliminating the hinge. I've seen this on a few other guitars from this era. If this does anything, it only enhances the tone and stability, as there is no flexing at the hinge. Only light checking of the finish is present and the binding is all intact. There are no cracks and the neck is straight as an arrow. The neck joint is stable and shows no signs of ever being reset. The action is low and notes are clear over the entire fretboard. Ships in a new TKL case. Nut width - 1 11/16" Weight - 5 lb 6 oz.
