About This Listing

Summary: This vintage Gibson is a fully-hollow archtop guitar with deep body, single florentine cutaway and one original P-90 pickup. It has just been setup by our in-house luthier and restrung with a new set of 10s. It is in great cosmetic shape but does have a bit of a ramping effect in the fretboard extension, also referred to as a “ski jump”. Notes on the low stings buzz some when played above the 12th fret due to this but it sounds great otherwise, especially when amplified. Notes lower than the 12th fret ring clear and the action is not is not overly high. It ships in an aftermarket case.


Body: The body is full depth, hollow, laminate maple construction with single cutaway and the original sunburst finish.


Neck: The neck is slimmer around the nut but gradually tapers to full thickness up the neck. It is a mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard, pearloid dots, 1.6” nut width, 24 3/4” scale length and it has large late 60s style frets.


Pickups/Hardware: It has one original P-90 pickup, volume, tone, rosewood floating bridge, Kluson Deluxe tuners, trapeze tailpiece and nylon nut.


Cosmetics: This guitar has finish checking on the body, a small dings around the sides, back of neck and back of the guitar but no major gashes or scratches. It looks like a well loved vintage guitar should! There is a stable hairline crack in output jack area, some finish cracks around the neck heel and a slight gap in-between the heel and side. There is some finish worn off the side of the fingerboard from playing and some dings and wear around the edges of the headstock. The pick guard is no longer with the guitar.


Playability: Our in-house guitar tech has just inspected, setup and restrung this guitar with a new set of 10s. The truss rod is fully functioning and the action has been setup on the medium side so it will play as clean as possible with as little buzz as possible due to the ramp up at the fingerboard extension. The frets have significant wear in the first 3 frets but it plays well. This is a perfectly usable player for someone who stays in the first 12 frets.


Weight: 5 lbs, 10 oz.


Case: This guitar comes with an aftermarket hardshell case and we will ship it professionally packed and fully insured!
