Here’s a guitar so rare that according to Gibson scholars, “No more than a handful were made”. It’s a factory original 17” cutaway tenor guitar with all the richness and power of the classic Gibson L-7C.
This example has a tight-grained carved sunburst spruce top mated to a carved highly-figured maple back & sides in the typical ‘60s walnut hue. The neck features the “Super 300” style double slash inlays in the bound rosewood finger board. The bound peg head has the familiar crown Gibson insignia in an ebony overlay, surrounded by Kluson “butterfly” tuners. The sound is really BIG and playability is excellent with low action. Also included is an additional pick guard which has a floating pickup complete with mounted finger tip controls.
This exceedingly rare instrument is in excellent condition, with the exception of a small section at the edge of the top which looks as though it may have been (very professionally) inlaid and/or repaired finish perfectly matched.
$5,075.00 including period correct Guild hard case.
