    Hi y’all. Long time lurker here

    many deals on the gear page, the bay, and reverb (lately)

    Thought I’d post here, in hopes of finding a good one. I kind of want a thin to medium neck. I’ve heard good things about late 80s, late 90s, but I’m open. Looking for double humbuckers.

    please PM me if you have one you’re willing to sell. Photos and pics please!! :-)


    also if you have advice where else to find one, please help! I wish there was a vintage guitar shop in Colorado...
    Stay safe

    ES-175s are wonderful jazz guitars. Good luck in your quest!

    Not sure where you are located in Colorado but there is a neat vintage guitar shop in Arvada called Olde Town Pickin’ Parlor and they do have archtops available, but no ES-175’s right now: Olde Town Pickin' Parlor. Kit is the owner. Also, Arvada was the town where the Rocky Mountain Archtop Festival was held back in September 2019 and hosted by Peter Henriksen of Henriksen Amps: Rocky Mountain Archtop Festival. It wasn’t held in 2020 because of COVID and not sure about 2021. But definitely keep an eye out to see if it will be held in the future as it is definitely worth attending.

    Hey SS. I’ve 2 nylons left. I’m mainly doing Bossa Nova anyway. I held on to that ES175 for 5 years. The thing can’t be told from new. It’s a pretty one!

    Yes you did. Wasn't that when we met when I posted it for sale? You should have bought that guitar for a lowly $3200, with its 9 layers of headstock binding.

    I called you back, but it was too late! You had already sold it! My bad, I hesitated. But, I got a friend out of the deal!

    Indeed! Greg has hooked me up, and I can’t wait for its arrival. Thank you to all that reached out, and sent best wishes! For a first time forum deal, you all have been very gracious. I intend to play it daily!!
