Anybody know a street date or price on this Epi ES-175?
$499 here: http://www.music123.com/Epiphone-ES-175-Reissue-i378568.music Looks like they're only offering the TS finish - Natural would be nice.
nice guitar...to bad that bridge is a bit of an eye sore....
Put some P-90s in there & you might have a real guitar.
I was thinking the same thing.
That's what Z-90s are for!
Don't overlook the Fralin P-92's!
That's what I was thinking
I bet it would be great with Z-90s! It's amazing what a change of pickups can do on these Epis. I have an Epi ES-295 that I put Lollar Vintage P-90s in and it sounds a-may-zing. It's now a great rock-a-billy box.
the cutaway doesnt look right to me but it may be the pic angle. maybe someone else will chime in here, but a 175 cutaway almost curls back around sorta....
this is like a 2 pickup version of the newer RI zephyr regent moel...i had one and it wasnt bad...it was natural too...
Yeah, but for $500...? It's not too bad...
Looks like it has the potential to be a great entry level jazz box. The things I say that would turn me off were the maple neck and the fact that while they list the top as maple they say laminated mahogany for the body. I wonder why they didn't do a mahogany neck and all maple body?
