This gorgeous ES-175 is in brand new pristine, unplayed condition. It's absolutely flawless in every way. I took it out of the case to inspect it and take photos. This is the exact one that has a usual street price of $5000-6000. I got an amazing deal on it and now I'm passing it on to a lucky buyer.
I have one of these myself, and I love it. The unpotted MHS pickups Gibson is now making have really wowed me with their tone, very warm and full.

A dead-accurate reproduction of the ES-175 that set the standard, with dual PAF-style pickups, rounded ‘C’ playing feel, authentic archtop tones, and vintage-correct ’59 looks
The ES-175 was an instant classic right from its debut in 1949, but most players agree that it reached its peak in 1959, with two PAF humbuckers and the legendary neck profile that makes late-’50s Gibsons so highly sought after. The 1959 ES-175 from Gibson Memphis represents the finest re-creation of this hallowed 'jazz box' that has ever been produced. Accurate arched laminated maple top and back, solid maple sides, tan vintage binding, single-ring Kluson tuners, VOS nickel hardware, quartered Adirondack spruce braces, rolled fingerboard binding and Historic truss rod all take this outstanding archtop back in time more than 55 years, while a pair of PAF-style MHS humbuckers ensure it delivers every ounce of sweet ’59 tone. Add the unparalleled quality of 100% made-in-Memphis craftsmanship and a host of 2015 upgrades, and it’s an unbeatable archtop-electric for a wide range of styles.
