About This Listing

A really cool player or collectors guitar , well loved played, by a master player for years, around Atlanta. All the good things are there, birdeye maple back and sides with the two Pat Number Sticker T Top  Humbuckers, has a tuneamatic bridge with the original rosewood one in the case. Comes with a nice TKL Epiphone Hardshell case. Plays like butta, and sounds amazing, like Spencer says ....its all you could want ! On the back of the guitar  at the bottom, there is a wear mark and it may have been bumped there ...but overall this is a players dream. You can almost hear someone playing Misty or Shadow of Your Smile. Nickel Covers !! The only thing I know for certain on this guitar is is a 1962 Barney Kessel Gibson, the T Tops are replacements for the originals, the bridge may not be original, it has been refretted, the tailpiece is a real Gibson Tailpiece but may be from a different era, and the nickel covers are about 10-15 years old. Also has an original M69 ring on the neck and a replacement ring on the bridge that just developed a crack in the middle. The story told to me on this guitar has changed it was bought off Ebay about 12 years ago ! The owner is an elderly man and got this one confused with the two others he used to own ! He worked at an Atlanta Music Store and played around town for years. So to sum it up if you are looking for a great players guitar with a lot of mojo this is it ...if you are looking for a dead to right collectors piece this aint it !!
