This items is being relisted because the buyer backed out of the deal :(
I will start with all the information I could gather from the gibson website: J-100 XTRA spruce top, round soundhole, black pickguard, 2 stripe bound body/rosette, maple (new 1999) or mahogany (disc. 1998) back/sides/neck, 14/20 fret rosewood fingerboard with pearl dot inlay, rosewood bridge with black pins, blackface peghead with pearl crown/logo inlay, 3 per side nickel tuners with pearloid buttons. Available in Antique Natural (new 1999), Antique Walnut, and Vintage Sunburst (disc. 1998) finishes.
The model number on the guitar for auction is: 91936008. Again, from Gibson website, this number means: YDDDYPPP: where YY is the production year, DDD is the day of the year and PPP is the plant designation and/or instrument rank. That means this guitar was build in 1996 in Bozeman, Montana.
I bought this in Los Angeles and it made its way across to New York with me 3 years ago. I have been carrying this guitar with me for about 5 years, and I hardly play it - I mostly play electric and am not very versatile on acoustic. This guitar has spent the last 2 years under my bed. Its main asset is that the sound you get is very full and has extra bass because of the jumbo size body.
There are no problems with this guitar, plays great, sounds great. The varnish on the body is cracked (this seems to be normal and I tried to find out how to stop this from happening, but the guitar tech said that's just the way it was, and the money to set it righ
