The guitar pictured in the 1966 catalogue is identical to the instrument pictured above.

The modern cutaway design provides easy access to the entire fret range. Easy to play and comfortable to hold, the ES-175D produces a brilliant distortion-free tone

The guitar pictured is a typical 1966 Gibson ES-175D. Shipping figures for the ES-175D in 1966 are as follows: Natural - 55, Sunburst - 382.

Typical 1966 features: one-piece mahogany neck, six-digit stamped serial number without MADE IN USA below it. Zig-zag tailpiece and crown inlay positioned above centre on the headstock. The gold bell control knobs with metal inserts are still present, although soon to be replaced with witch-hat knobs.

Other features unchanged from earlier ES-175 versions: maple top, back and sides. Bound front and back, with a bound neck and split parallelogram inlays. Patent number humbucker pickups and Kluson 320-VP machine heads.

The 1966 US price for the ES175D was $425.
