This makes the fifth Herb Ellis Signature PE-175 I’ve had in stock and all have been superb electric archtops. This one is certainly no exception. It plays like a dream. It shows some fretwear, but conservatively have at least 80% of their life left.
The rest of the guitar is in all original condition, and has seen very little wear with even most of the gold plating still intact on the hardware with the exception of the tailpiece which has lost most of its plating. The bridge has also lost some of its gold plate. The finish looks nearly flawless with no dents or dings and only the lightest of rare surface scratches.
The bridge has some room for adjustment, both up and down, although only a small amount in the downward direction. The action is currently set quite low, and it plays very clearly up and down the entire neck.
The original alligator surface, hardshell case is included. All of our guitars pass a thorough, professional inspection, and are guaranteed to be in the described and photographed condition on arrival.
