    The harness it was connected to was complete shyte.
    I can only second that. The original Epi harnas is shielded very badly, at least in my reissue 175D. The premium harnas is better, but I had the change to hear the difference between my newly installed harnass and CTS pots and a standard premium through a pretty new Fender Hot Rod and mine had a little less noice. Both guitars had the least noice (by some margin) when the pick-up selector was in the middle. And I found that the treble bleed that I put on my guitar didn´t have the great difference that I thought it would have. Not to the tone I like play jazz with using the neck pick-up. The advantage of not changing the volume when changing the tone is nice to have. Still glad I made the mod, but I could have managed without it. What was a supprise is that the sound of my bridge pick-up (which is a gibson classic 57 neck pick-up) gives a much rounder voice of tone then the 57+ that is mounted on the Premium. Without loosing the high´s. It was so much easier to find a very bluesy sound with mine then the premium, which sounded way too thin, of too airy, don´t know how to say. This is pure luck as I bought a set of 2 neck pick-ups, which I found OK knowing that I wouldn´t be using the bridge PU very much. I wouldn´t want it different now!

    She is here: 2009 vintage sunburst. Maybe a pickup upgrade in the future? For now doing great.

    Interesting. I'm assuming they're all strung with the same strings (TI flats?). You could gig that EPI and no one would be any the wiser (unless they like looking at headstocks)!

    I also own one, and I never use the bridge pickup. Does anyone know if the 57 bridge pickup is exactly the same or any different from the one in the neck?? Might wanna throw the bridge one into the neck of another axe!

    Here's my 2014 ES-175 Premium. I'm a dedicated lurker, and have never posted. But I couldn't resist doing my own version of the photo in post #4.

    Were there any non premium epis coming with Gibson 57 pickups? There is one in my local area that has no premium stamp on the truss rod cover, finish is glossy, but the owner is persistent that it originally came with Gibson 57 pickups.

    There are some pictures in the ad: Epiphone 175 - KupujemProdajem

    What is the finish on non premium reissue? Is it a glossy nitro or poly?

    Thank you and sorry for jumping on without a guitar (yet).

    The pickguard does not seem to have the correct shape for an Epi 175….. don’t know what that means for the rest of the guitar, but just saying.

    There were no non-Premium ES-175s that came with Gibson Classic 57s. Period. If there are Gibson Classic 57s in the guitar someone installed them, which is a good thing. I would ask for pictures of the back of both pickups before making any offers. The finish on the Premium model is un-buffed nitrocellulose lacquer. This is definitely not a Premium model, but still worth pursuing at the right price. Good luck!

    The glossy's are definitely poly finish, but very nice indeed.
    But no, they did not come with gibson 57's. But that is the perfect upgrade to make a nice guitar
