    If I recall correctly these are difficult to find. This one is available at Carter Vintage Guitars in Nashville, TN, USA, for $850. Epiphone ES-175 Premium 2014 – Carter Vintage Guitars. No affiliation with the guitar, just thought I would bring it to everyone's attention.

    Great guitars for the price point. + Gibson classic 57s and a hard case also.

    Better to buy these new old stock. If used, the likelihood of the 57s still being there goes down.

    A decent buy for it’s condition. And they’ve become difficult to find. But I’m not a fan of their thin necks. I owned one in wine red just like it. The guitar gave a serious run against an ES175 I owned at the time. Almost so good I wondered why I kept the ES175 at 6 times the purchase price for the Epi Premium.

    I still have my wine red bought almost ne from Reverb. Classic 57s were still there. I had to have the switch fixed though. Keep A/B ing with Gibsons and deciding not to buy a Gibson. I actually like the neck but got a bone nut and nice TI flatwounds installed and set it up for low action. Thunky!

    Mine is black and was a factory 2nd(not sure what the blemish was) and I put in Gibson Burstbucker in the neck. It sounds fantastic compared to many other guitars I've since bought and returned or sold. I set it up myself and thankfully it's a 2nd with a USED stamp on the back or I would have sold it in a hurry when I saw the price rise up and been instantly disappointed with other guitars.

    Just bought this guitar! It's on the way now, and I should get it on Friday. Can't wait! I've been lurking on this forum for a while but this is my first post. Anyway, thanks for the PSA. I think I'm getting a really nice jazzbox for a fair price.

    Congratulations, Joe! From everything I have heard you will be very happy with your new acquisition. Please post a NGD with photos when you get a chance. We will be interested in your thoughts about the guitar. Not sure what strings are on the guitar but I am a fan of TI Swings for inset pickup archtops. And medblues had also mentioned the Swings and about installing a bone nut so not sure what is stock. And, welcome to the Forum!

    In my opinion, those Epi 175's are as close as any 175 copy has ever gotten to "getting it right."

    I have one in this same color. Only gripe is the satin finish. I know they save money with it. It's fine for a cheap guitar but these are only relatively cheap now. If I weren't so lazy (I hate the idea of taking all the hardware off) I'd give it a polish. I know folks get good results with good quality polishes. Not gloss but smoother than what it is now.
