Gibson 1980 guitar and bass catalogue. page 17. Details of the Gibson ES-175/CC. This model differs from the standard ES-175D, in that it has just one Charlie Christian (hence CC) pickup at the neck, rather than the two Gibson humbuckers that had been in use since late 1957.
The Charlie Christian ES-175 was priced at $50 above the standard ES-175D; in July 1980 this was $1099 vs $1049. Available finishes were Antique Sunburst and Walnut.
