Lover artist

Steve Howe

Legend of the rock world active in "Jesus" and "Asia" representing progressive rock band. It has not only rock but also various musical performances from various genres. It is also known as a gig es-175 D lover. I watched many times in the catalog at a young age, I was longing for the sound of design, and the sound that Wes Montgomery and Joe Pass reached. The charm of es-175d is that you can get a variety of sound, and especially the sound of the front pickups you can get the tones you can't get on any other guitar By the way, round round is used. It is possible to use the characteristics of es-175.

 

Pat Metheny

It is one of the modern masters who continue to create the creative music beyond the frame of jazz guitarist. It is known to have used es-175 DN long since young. The favorite es-175 DN was originally a normal specification, but the rear pickups and the assemblages associated with it were removed from the way and used (many of them remember es-175 covering the rear pickup holes with black tape). I currently use the model of Ibanez's signature model. It is greedy of the new equipment without the old convention, and expresses very creative sound with es-175 DN. It is the one who expanded the possibility of es-175.

 

Wes Montgomery

Jazz Giants "Wes Montgomery". Established one style of jazz guitar with overwhelming performance. The style of ringing loud sound with a loud sound has influenced many players. It was also known to have used Gibson L-5, but there were es-175 models. The jacket with es-175 is said to be used in the impressive album "incredible jazz guitar". Isn't it one who drew the wonderful sound of es-175?

 

Joe Pass

Jazz Giants "Joe Pass", the famous guitar solo. Of course, I can listen to a lot of splendid performance in the ensemble, but there is a lot of hearing when I hear it on a solo guitar. I use the es-175 as an acoustic guitar (in the form of my king in the guitar) in solo guitar "vauoozo". You can hear beautiful sound as a different acoustic guitar. Of course, the play also makes the play of the different dimension. Isn't it one of the name players who drew the wonderful sound of es-175?

 

In addition, the Jazz Guitar Masters such as JIM hall, Kenny Burrell and herbal Ellis are the original jazz guitarist (Ronny Jordan etc). The guitarist and slash are used for recording, so many guitarists are attracted to the charm of es-175.
