This is among the cleanest guitars I've ever seen from the 60's - at least considering that it has been played.

I doubt you could find a '67 ES-175 in this condition without doing a LOT of searching. In addition, the instrument just had a $500 refret by Al Milburn - if you don't know him, he's the best in the bay area. I have the receipt for the work. 100% original, except a bone nut (better than plastic) was installed during the refret. Serial number is: 864274.

Anything you see in the photos that looks like scratches is in fact reflected light. This guitar does have a few dings of course, but it's in simply remarkable condition for it's age. Sounds and plays like a dream. If you want one of the very best jazzboxes you can find, this is it. Not interested in trades.

If you like I can send you more/larger photos.

Thanks, and enjoy the music!
