Recording King "Ray Whitley" Model 1027 Acoustic Guitar, Vintage 1939
  • Made By Gibson For Montgomery Ward
  • High End Jumbo, Rosewood Back & Sides

Product Description

Here we have a Gibson-made jumbo, made for Montgomery Wards, an extremely rare and high quality instrument. This one is the higher of the two models, being out of rosewood and being fancier, with attractive inlays and more. Ray Whitley was a country singer who became successful as a movie actor and had a penchant for custom Gibson guitars. At first, they wouldn't put his name on a model so he did an end run and went to Montgomery Wards, which resulted in this fabulous model with the unique bridge based on a late '20s bridge and a unique pickguard and peghead shape.

There are several cracks at the butt end most likely from having been dropped on its end pin, and otherwise it's in fabulous condition.
