1967 GibsonES-175 – Sparkling Burgundy

This is a very rare example to see, a 1967 Gibson ES-175 in its original Sparkling Burgundy finish! We usually come across 175’s in Sunburst and Natural, so seeing it in this color is so cool. This finish has faded overtime, leaving it to look more bronze or gold in some areas of the body and neck. We see this a lot with Sparkling Burgundy, and it makes each guitar in this finish look so unique depending on how it has aged. This guitar sports split parallelogram inlays on a Rosewood fretboard, and these original frets have very little play wear so there’s a ton of life left in them before the guitar will need a refret. Finally, this guitar is equipped with patent no. pickups, rather than T tops.
