WHERE DO I START? AS FAR AS I CAN DETERMINE FROM THE RESEARCH I HAVE DONE THIS GIBSON WAS MADE SOMETIME AROUND 1970-1972? THE BODY IS SQUARE SHOULDERED DREADNAUGHT STYLE LIKE A DOVE OR HUMMINGBIRD. THERE IS NO DOT ABOVE THE 'I' IN GIBSON. THE SERIAL NUMBER IS 9XXXX5 AND IT HAS 'MADE IN USA' STAMPED BELOW THE STAMPED SERIAL NUMBER. THE BACK OF THE HEADSTOCK HAS A VOLUTE, FACTORY KLUSON INLINE TUNERS, ORIGINAL TOBACCO BURST FINISH THAT IS CHECKING AND CRACKING BUT ONLY THE FINISH, NOT THE WOOD. THE ACTION IS NICE AND LOW AND FOR A TWELVE STRING ITS EASY TO PLAY. THAT BEING SAID HERE ARE THE ISSUES:


THERE IS A HOLE IN THE BOTTOM WHERE A PICKUP JACK USED TO BE. THE ORIGINAL BRIDGE LIFTED AS DID MOST OF THESE, AND WAS REPLACED WITH A SLIGHTLY LARGER EBONY BRIDGE. THE ORIGINAL PICKGUARD IS GOD KNOWS WHERE AND WAS REPLACED WITH A ROSEWOOD PICKGUARD FOR SOME REASON. THE PICKGUARD AND BRIDGE REPLACEMENT WORK WAS DONE BY 'STEVE CARR' SOMETIME IN THE 80'S. STEVE WAS KNOWN FOR MAKING EXPLODING LES PAULS FOR ACE FREHELY AND AXE BASSES FOR GENE SIMMONS BUT ACOUSTIC GUITARS WAS NOT HIS FORTE'. THERE IS NOTHING STRUCTURELY WRONG WITH THE GUITAR OR STEVES REPAIRS BESIDES NOT TRYING TO KEEP IT AS ORIGINAL AS POSSIBLE.  IT COMES WITH THE ORIGINAL BEAT-UP HARD CASE AND ORIGINAL BROKEN BRIDGE IN THE CASE COMPARTMENT. I HAVE HELD ON TO THIS GUITAR FOR YEARS AND I JUST CANT KEEP IT ANY LONGER. I NEVER PLAY IT. IT JUST STAYS IN THE CASE IN A CLOSET AND GROWS OLDER DAY BY DAY. I AM TRYING TO THIN THE HEARD OF THE GUITARS I DONT PLAY ANYMORE AND THIS IS ONE. IF ANYONE KNOWS WHAT MODEL THIS IS I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU. THE ORANGE
