Product Description

By Gibson, a relatively rare "high end" cheapie, at $15 when new, laminated maple back & sides, nice "C" shape neck, no visible truss rod - there is one (metal) in the neck, and ladder braces. This one has had an interesting life, as is evidenced by various (repaired) issues like a top crack running from below the soundhole to the bottom of the top, a replaced, oversized bridge, an amateur but effective neck reset and new Golden Age tuners. Not all of these ladder braced Gibsons sound this good, so this one is a real treat, with the typical dry tone, but a good bottom end and the great screaming treble that makes for a real bluesy tone and works really well for bottleneck blues. This guitar's FON number shows up in Spann's list as 1940.
