An exceptionally clean converted Stage De Luxe with a very strong, clear voice. Mahogany back, sides, and neck. Very nice Adirondack spruce top. Original single unit Grover tuners with cream colored buttons. Black painted headstock front with white script "Gibson" logo and white block letter "Roy Smeck Stage De Luxe" model designation. Original very hard bone nut. Brazilian Rosewood finger board with pearl dots inlay. Cream body binding. Cream-black-cream soundhole purfling. Original tiger stripe pickguard.
Replacement Brazilian Rosewood bridge with proper bone saddle and replacement solid bridge pins. Original endpin.
The unmodified original bridge was in good shape, but was only about half the height needed to support the saddle.
COMPLETE CONVERSION by Alan Perlman included: Neck reset and fretting, narrowing nut width to 1 13/16", new finish applied of reprofilied neck barrel, and making the new bridge. Alan also glued the slight beginnings of a top seam separation near the tail block. This guitar is exceptionally clean, with only a few slight nicks. The voice is insistently strong and clear, with even response from the open strings to the top of the playing area of the fingerboard. An excellent example of this model. Looks to be an original late 30's Lifton hard shell case, with vintage strings and the original bridge. $14,500 plus actual shipping charge.
