Overview

Epiphone is proud to present the Epiphone ES-175 Premium, a faithful new reissue of what many consider the most famous electric archtop in popular music, heard on classics from jazz to rock in the hands of pioneers like Joe Pass, Scotty Moore, and Wes Montgomery. Epiphone's long history of innovation began with designing archtop guitars. And now, Epiphone steps up its game again with the new ES-175 Premium featuring Gibson USA '57 Classic pickups and a vintage-inspired "aged" lacquer finish that will make you think you're playing a 50's original but at a price anyone can afford.

The Roots of A Legend
The ES-175 was introduced in 1949 as a mid-size, more affordable version of the venerable L-5, the very first modern archtop and the inspiration for the best Gibson and Epiphone archtops of the jazz era. The original ES-175 was truly a modern guitar that anticipated a new era of jazz and pop music that was hotter, louder, and constantly stretching musical boundaries. The ES-175 was the first archtop with a Florentine (sharp) cutaway. And by 1957, it came with the innovative and now standard humbucker pickup. The ES-175 quickly the preferred model for both jazz players and rock and rollers with a background in jazz, especially for guitarists looking for the "Wes Montgomery" L-5 sound at a lower cost.

The new Epiphone ES-175 Premium is just like the original--a fully hollow jazz box that's easy to hold, easy to play and affordable. And with the addition of Gibson '57 Classic pickups, the Epiphone ES-175 Premium is versatile enough for any genre with cool crisp archtop tone from its all-maple construction and killer humbucker pickups.

Epiphone Archtops, the Modern Standard

The introduction of the ES-175 Premium brings Epiphone full circle in its long history of producing affordable, professional instruments that can deliver pro sound night after night. The Epiphone ES-175 Premium features a traditional laminated Maple body with single ply binding with a vintage-inspired "aged" lacquer finish topped off with a traditional 3-ply black and white pickguard.

The ES-175 Premium has a hand-fitted, glued-in mahogany neck with a SlimTaperTM profile and a 24.75" scale that's poised to come alive with the very first note you play. The bound rosewood fingerboard has classic split-parallelogram inlays and Epiphone's iconic "sloped dovewing" headstock is fitted with Grover 18:1 machine heads for quick, accurate, and intuitive tuning, and a standard 1.68" nut.

Gibson USA '57 Classic Pickups

Every great electric archtop has great pickups and the ES-175 Premium truly becomes a time-traveling marvel with the inclusion of two Gibson USA ˜57 Classic humbucker pickups that recreate the wide tonal range and incredible sensitivity of the ES-175's original PAF-style pickups that today are the most sought after vintage pickups in the world.

Classic Hardware

All Epiphone instruments feature rock solid hardware that's guaranteed for life. The ES-175 Premium comes with Epiphone "Deluxe" machine heads and full range controls for volume and tone all equipped with Epiphone's full-size 1" 500K„¦ potentiometers, a rim-mounted output jack, and Epiphone's 3-way all metal toggle mounted on a traditional rubber grommet. The bridge is set up with a traditional floating rosewood base supporting a fully adjustable nickel Tune-o-matic bridge. The bridge is "pinned" to ensure perfect placement and intonation every time. And the classic "Zig-Zag" Trapeze tailpiece makes the new ES-175 Premium virtually indistinguishable from a vintage original-except for the price! An optional premium hard case is also available.

Limited Lifetime Warranty
One thing you can't get with a vintage instrument is Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson 24/7/365 Customer Service.

        The reason I gave 4 stars and not 5 is because I wish Epiphone would have choose a wood stain on the sides of the Sunburst model ... instead they just painted it black.

            Comments about Epiphone ES-175 Premium Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

            I've had this guitar about a month and I just love it. I got it at a much reduced price due to some nearly imperceptible dings here and there. It plays great, though it's a bit brighter than a Gibson 175, however, after replacing the bridge with a rosewood floating bridge, the tone mellowed considerably. I favor the neck pickup and with a set of medium flat wounds, its just terrific for low volume finger-style jazz and folk.

                  Comments about Epiphone ES-175 Premium Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

                  I really like this guitar. I got it on sale for under $900.00 & for what it is...it does a great job. No, its not like my 2004 Byrdland, I can't hear the difference between say, 5-6 on a tone knob like I can on the Byrdland. But then again, comparing these two instruments as players, I don't see the $4700 difference in the price I paid in 2004. I was interested ion the Epiphone because of the "Gibson" pickups that it is supposed to have. Awfully cheap looking for Gibson. But I can get the tones I want, just not as easily as with other guitars I own.

                  I use the Epiphone for recording jazz tracks, swing and country back-up,m and I feel good about taking it outside in a gig bag to teach at my school. I play it through an old Twin Reverb as well as an ancient Peavey Vintage 50 watt w/4-10's. I don't think I would like this guitar as much if I had to play it only through the Twin, but the Peavey gives it some 8k and above that I like. So, thats my take an honest, inexpensive archtop that one could easily play
                  jazz guitar upon..

                  Just bought this guitar. I have own Gibson's and Ibanez. This guitar is just as good as a gibson es 175. Love the neck profile. I play jazz guitar, replaced the strings with thomastik 12-50 flatwounds. The sound and playing is excellent. If you thinking about buying one, you won't be disappointed. Thanks, epiphone. Jerry

                  Comments about Epiphone ES-175 Premium Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

                  I recently purchased and fell in love with an Epi Bonamassa Les Paul. As my attention drifted toward hollowbody archtops, I returned to Epiphone for quality and reasonable price points. I inquired about Gibson pickups and the manager at my local GC brought the ES-175 to my attention. Taking it off the wall I was impressed with both the playability and tone. After a quick setup, she was ready to rock. Through my Deluxe Reverb, clean tones go from warm jazz to roots rock. Pushed through an OCD overdrive you can get a trashy Neil Youngish sound or even a passable modern distortion in the bridge position. This guitar is not ideal for high volume excursions, even with the f-holes taped I experienced some out of control feedback. Who cares, she's almost as loud as an acoustic unplugged, and plays like a quality electric. Thanks again Epiphone.

                  Comments about Epiphone ES-175 Premium Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

                  All I can say is with very little setup time on this guitar out of the box it is one of the best guitars I have ever played. I've been in the business for over 50 years and this guitar is that impressive. The finnish (I purchased the vintage sunburst),electronics and playability are that good. I've played many es175's over the years, the thinner neck on this give it a real comfortable feel. The tones are beautiful and lush. The best part is the price. This guitar is not a wall hanger to be admired....just play the heck out of it, you will be very suprized.
