This is an early G-1 Deluxe with nicely-engraved pearl block inlays, a deluxe headstock overlay, and an engraved trapeze tailpiece, all original. The dark sunburst finish is faded, and the top appears refinished. There are two repaired top cracks. All parts are original, although the original bridge is missing inserts on the base and a later Gibson Johnny Smith bridge has been utilized. The guitar had a fresh neck reset in 2018 and it comes with an original black Lifton hard case. A nice early Stromberg at a reasonable price with a fine voice.
