OK, so I know this is a long shot but I need help finding a vintage part. My cousin has a 1959 ES 175 which was his fathers and it has a severely broken headstock, part of the fretboard is missing and bolts and screws where they shouldn't be. I took it to my luthier and he said although he can repair the headstock, to get it back to playability the best thing to do is replace the whole neck. So, I am throwing this out there since I figure this would be the best place to ask, does anyone have or know where I may be able to find a 1959 ES 175 neck?? I will post pictures soon.

If You are very-very-very lucky, You might spot one on eBay some day (from another broken guitar).


Gibson will not sell You one, but they will repair the guitar for You.


Another option: ask the luthier to craft a new neck for it.


Good luck... Bence
