This is officially the first model featuring a Charlie Christian pickup since the ES-150, on which the pickup made its original introduction in 1936. Although the ES-175CC was an instant success among jazz players looking for a vintage sound, only 479 units of the Kamalazoo crafted instrument were ever produced. Hear it jazz
Feel free to marvel at this 1962 Rodebald Hoyer Guitar. That’s probably what the skilled German Archtop maker was expecting you to do. The Flame shaped F-holes carved in its solid spruce body are typical from the early sixties.
