This guitar is a work of art, both in its gorgeous appearance, and in its exquisite playability and lovely deep, rich, full, and resonant tone. It plays fluently and the music flows beautifully eloquently from its full hollow body. The pickups give a variety of possibilities, but the rhythm pickup closest to the fretboard gives that lovely clean, clear resonant jazz guitar sound which is beloved by so many people. It has a thinner thickness than the ES 175, yet the ES 275's tone is as lustrous and vibrant and even more sonorous and singing than its forebear. This is a hand built world class guitar.
