Epiphone ES-175 Reissue


Recommended Posts

I purchased an ES-175 this past summer and I really like it. I noticed the stock strings seemed a bit heavy, I'm a rather new player so I changed them out and put 10's on it. It seems like it plays fine, but I'm concerned that this guitar should have had 11's on it.


Do you think I may have screwed the setup on it?

Not necessarily

I've done the same in the past

They generally start with 13's

If it's not buzzing it's OK

Watch out for the bridge moving with 10's



Q: Is this generally a problem with lightening strings, esp. if it's a movable bridge, like on the Joe Pass (don't know what bridge a 175 has--guess I can look it up)? Have been thinking about some jazzbox or other--this'd be good to know!
