I'm thinking I might get one


I know this is an older post, but I just bought one, and having an ES-175, a H575, and the Herb Ellis I can tell you this, it stands shoulder to shoulder with them much more "respected" guitars.

It will feedback / resonate a lot less than the 575, has tone equal to the 175 and the neck is perfect for me and my playing style. If anyone says they're not a good guitar, they're looking at the headstock not listening to or playing one.

Gnappi,

You are absolutely right. The PE-175 model is sensational. The craftsmanship is first rate. The sound is just tops. Like you, I have Matsumoku-made archtops and the "first-call" brand archtops (e.g., Gibson). The Arias, Bradleys, Ibanez's, etc., are simply outstanding.

Great choice on your part.
