On [his website](http://jbonamassa.com/joes-guitar-of-the-week/guitar-of-the-week-52-1957-gibson-es-175/), Joe Bonamassa wrote this about his 1957 Gibson: "1957 Gibson ES-175 with two sticker less PAFs. I bought this guitar from the late Dwight Mays from Georgia a week before his passing. He treasured this guitar and wanted it to go to a good home. He contacted me about it and I was happy to give it a new home and Dwight a little peace of mind. I named the guitar General Eisenhower in his honor. It is a fantastic ES-175 that I used on the Seesaw record with Beth Hart. A special thanks to Norm Harris of Normans Rare Guitars for giving me the proper brown Lifton case. A really great guitar and goes to the essence of guitar collecting. If you take care of them they will live on longer than we will."more
