I received my Gibson ES 175 as a gift three years ago. I had owned and played many guitars – dozens – up to that time, but I don’t think I ever fell in love so quickly with an instrument.
To my eyes, it recalls generations of the finest jazz musicians to hold a guitar. In my hands, it feels solid, stalwart. Like it has something to say. And to my ears, it produces some of the most remarkably beautiful sounds I have ever heard.
