Recording King Model 1285 by Gibson Acoustic Arch Top Guitar, Vintage 1936
  • By Gibson, Made for Montgomery Ward
  • Carved Top and Back
  • Excellent Condition

Product Description

Made by Gibson for Montgomery Ward with a Gibson The FON 721B that is in Spahn's list, identifying this as a model 1285: I had thought it was an M-5: it's great to get corrected by the real source. It has a sweet tone and a bigger but still comfortable neck. Everything's original except possibly the bridge, and the condition is fabulous.
