The AR372ce with its double Kent Armstrong designed Humbuckers, comes as close to the Gibson 175 as you can get but has a unique voice of it's own. The bridge pickup offers more tone variations than a single pickup design. It also to avoid the top from feeding back and gives the guitar a little more electric (ala Wes Montgomery) sound. The larger nut size of the Eastmans makes fingerstyle playing easier. You can't go wrong with this one.
