The unique Taylor-designed pickups are the foundation the Taylor solid bodies are built on. The Classic is loaded with 3/4-size humbuckers featuring a new type of magnet and special winding process. The combination creates vintage humbucker sound with the power and dynamic range of modern pickups.
For this electric guitar to happen, it had to be innovative, unique and worthy of a place alongside the guitars that electric guitar players have loved for generations. When the design group at Taylor invented new pickups and Bob heard them, he knew the time had come. Starting with the pickups, each element of this solid body was designed from the ground up. The ingenuity that Bob Taylor insisted on resulted in the creation of an electric guitar that’s sure to inspire and well-equipped to impress.
This reissue electric guitar features a transparent finish on a laminated maple body. The bindings on the top back and fingerboard, along with the trapeze tailpiece and parallelogram inlays provide a touch of style and class that is unrivaled. Dual ’57 Classic humbucking pickups crank out all the silky smooth jazz tone you could dream of. The Gibson ES-175 is well worth the hefty price tag that goes along with it.
