ES-175 Premium
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.

One thing you can’t get with a vintage instrument is Epiphone’s Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson 24/7/365 Customer Service. The Epiphone ES-175 Premium is more than just a time travel guitar. It could also be the only guitar you ever need to own. But maybe you should get two, just in case.
