1949 ES 175, Natural finish
Posted 27 June 2012 - 09:49 AM
I can take pics no problem, but just wanted to get a feel for now. Does the fact that the guitar is one of the first 12 natural finish ES-175's affect the value?

The devaluation from the work that has been done to the guitar far outweighs any additional value it MIGHT have had from being one of the earliest examples of the 175.

You might want to contact George again and get his opinions, which frankly mean a lot more than mine or anyone else's around here in terms of what goes on in the vintage guitar market.
Beautiful example of a 175N, by the way.
