Gibson ES-175 Vintage
Gibson ES175 Reissue.
Issue an opinion on crdible a beautiful instrument would require a long essay quon have tons of high-end instruments else, except for some tests I am condemned to compare with what I know well is a TRS Ibanez AF-end fund between 75 to 10 times less CHRE. Both on a consistent body and a neck pickup and bridge. The bridges are similar in technique and matrial. The 2-color sunburst.
The beauty and finish: In the form of head neck between Gibson and rickety DAngelico monstrous advantage got my Ibanez., The head of ralisations handle but are DIFFERENT perfect on the 2, only on the n SERIES Gibson is serious falsified the top of the handle and cest trs well. The cls Gibson with nasty plastic bits like the 60's. Ibanez advantage. Gibson nacres distinct advantage. The number of boxes of 21 for Ibanez Gibson gives lavantage 24. Large frets Gibson or Ibanez jaime fine 2 well. The body, the Gibson veins beautiful wood, Gibson distinct advantage. Nets dtourage plastic of the body and the handle in white Gibson is not the height of the ivory Ibanez, these nets also dtourent ouis cash on Ibanez neck and head trs trs cest and well done, Ibanez clear advantage (see the shameful finish cram in iron red Gibson ouis). The patent gives the impression of Gibson and paste the default LGERS daspect on the handle, Ibanez distinct advantage.
Gibson's book is a REALLY beautiful tui (apart from the grip Pipe crados) Lebanon must rate the price of almost ltui Gibson, silent book in the box. Tumpline button, the price at Gibson cest really a shame LES175 comes with a single button, jai t Bond dacheter a button, then drill and screw the button on the heel, is what lends a guitar finish? Daut that this guitar can hardly be used without a belt. But does mean REdition reissue? Then all these complaints senvolent they? (It is as if they could set the R8 Gordini). They prove this by printing mdiocrit that it's true again as lpoque, nasty plastics, varnishes, finishes, etc. davant? But the only way to ensure its splendid dpoque?

UTILIZATION

Despite two cases the Gibson family size is much less comfortable without holding tumpline. This is required even sitting on the couch or a chair if we feel lquilibre difficult to Gibson that requires to be held in crab. The handle jai might try and try again I find the handle Gibson least ais that Lebanon is it slipping less polished? bomb the key may be less pronounced? the shape of the back or wide frets? My big hands vote for Ibanez. The number of box is less sometimes feel Ibanez Advantage trs net. Tuning, Gibson seems to be a little better laccordage. Height of the strings while the small advantage the 12th Gibson.
Cleaning, painted Gibson picks up more fat arm and hand. And that price jose put anything on this weird fear of patent labimer. For now the cloth Fender (the top) is my only Remde.

SOUNDS

Gibson ES 175 for jen I tried 5 more a vintage diffrent dacheter before this one, and jai limpression quaucune navait exactly the same sound, now I understand better: This Guitar compltement chang's Premire the 2 weeks and again but evolves more slowly and not always in the same direction, and seems sensible lhumidit, more and more I play the sound me seems hot. The box rings, rsons, a stamp with the same wooden velvet ropes that amplify the original post zips and squeaks of change of position. A loppos Lebanon has never moved from almost no noise rsons do and I had to painstakingly find the strings that make the sound and sing (flat files trs low tie) with some strings you could almost believe quil ny had no cash. The Gibson comes into its own in the sound of this prsence wooden singing. Cest a diffrence the background even if they rsonnent both the Gibson sound cushioning and warm staff its timber, it seems that his fate but dun absorbent softwood r ringing, lebanon noffre not this feeling it looks like the wood only his fate dun rsons. Cest alIbanez rsons well and returns the strings but did not have a personal stamp.
Connecting the the Gibson .. Ha Yes.The the timbre is warm and soft power and not soft, the rglages allow a wider range on the Gibson, especially the neck pickup most serious background, while the Submitted on balance is still Gibson, while remaining lebanon right takes a little dsquilibre between the strings. Latakia is the Gibson on the velvet rsonance of its wood and its cash, short and round runis Latakia, while in Lebanon it's more flat, but clearer, to explain the difference, lebanon its a bit like a solid body with ropes flat files. By bringing the mics the same distance from Lebanon as the Gibson is better at the punch but not the stamp, the Gibson is really fantastic about marriage punch and warmth of tone. Commutons on the bridge pickup gives lebanon trs rockabily well, but the great Gibson indfinissable see more fantastic in the patch. It is really what I wanted, or punch combines warmth of the wooden rsonance while remaining bright and balanced and versatile. Happiness research is well the sound!

OVERALL OPINION

Jai hsit long before this dacheter Gibson ES 175 and the ntait not really a blow to the heart of Gibson, but almost the only choice for this price range, be sure and certain not to fall just the sound of the big cot. Some instruments may be as well or even better, but how to be on? The tests are so alambiqus magazines. It happens not to be an ide prcise sounds, not knowing what brands and accessories of wood which I do not care, such as jai never read the patent handles excellently Gibson does not slip quil and had to break his guitar to screw a new button to the belt almost obligatory. Try dozens of brands and types of guitars in the store I saturate quickly (and dealers as well) and it is never the same conditions of fellow, Computer Accessories and dampli. Before Lachat jai store Dangelico essay, 2 Ibanez GB10 new and a vintage Gibson ES175 and 5 times a vintage, try the java as a Gretch and dartisan luthier. The 2nd CRITERIA dclenchant of this purchase the only certainty davoir APRS Sound and not a sound financial investment EST, if one day it must sell well hlas a Gibson ES175 c is a sure value known and recognized, financirement cest stone. And this great shot I lacked the heart dpart for this guitar, well I think it quaujourdhui nat by playing, I feel I find most beautiful dj. In rsum I think the price is lev but that the money is placed that the body is beautiful and trs is that the handle means, the sound yet stabilized APRS four months but then this sound! the sound I was looking for! SOUND!
So yes I Rasht!

Gibson ES-175 Vintage
Hello, I buy are 175 in 1995. Made in United States
It was and remains for me my favorite guitar (question mouth)
I kept 3ans.J 've done a year of jazz guitar at the Conservatory of Luxembourg.
At the time I think I did not have the maturity to appreciate the value and capabilities of this instrument, however, to 24.
Since I sold, I miss today.
What I remember is what was a sacred sound, it was heavy and it is true that I put a link near the head cook to be able to put a strap.
Or a question of piercing the body in order to establish a pawn
At the time I paid 14,500 francs in 1995.
When I see the price now .... but good since I knew also that there are other cheaper instruments of very good quality or better.
Finally if we are not professional or that is not playing in a group (CONCERE, recording), it is a shame to put a price like this in a guitar.
The gibson es175 guitar is my dream now.

UTILIZATION

Grip, the acute attack is not bad.
It is a bit heavy.
The balance is not great, but it does not bother me.
The sound is terrible (hot moeleux and powerful at the same time, it restores the attack)

SOUNDS

It is best suited to jazz.
Personally I played the blues, ballads, pop, and rock (that is clear it is a shame to use it for rock or hard (it's too aggressive and it disrupts everything.
Because the bridge is floating is the tenssion ropes of the trapeze that keeps it all.
I had a hand amp Fender performer 1000, but it gave a simple transistor well.

Sure that with such a lamp vieu Twin Reverb is good but better beauucoup obliged Finance
Clear sound with a little reverb and a little saturated's terrible.

OVERALL OPINION

Used 3 years
She is beautiful
I try other models and even two different es175
It is too expensive now
