Lot Details & Additional Photographs
Manuscript serial number 63536 on interior label, factory order number 11356 on block, natural spruce top bound with figured birch back and sides, mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard having shell position inlays, additional dot inlay on top's scroll, the headstock with The Gibson
logo above a fleur-de-lils shell inlay. With modern hardshell case,
This easy player has low action and produces the mellow full-bodied sound expected of a classic early Gibson.
Replaced tailpiece, bridge and tuners; re-finished sides and back; four small areas of possible fill on the headstock, two of these impacting the inlaid logo and the fleur de lils; replaced binding on tenor side of the neck below the nut; small drill hole on top from missing pick guard; several vertical cracks are on the lower half of the top, with two starting to open; overall good condition with a lot of music left to offer.
