Gibson Roy Smeck Stage Deluxe 1943 Sunburst

Reverb Estimated Used Price Range

  • $6,000$8,000

As a Hawaiian-style guitar, the Roy Smeck Stage Deluxe was intended to be played on the lap, and came with a massive 12-fret neck to match its rotund body. Many players have had these instruments' necks reworked or replaced to transform them into viable spanish-style guitars. For this reason, there is a lot of variation in the originality of surviving Roy Smecks. Even in non-original form, these guitars are of great interest to collectors in search of the legendary massive tone of a Roy Smeck.
