Hello, I am selling my Gibson Co-Classic that ive had since I was a child because I am in the rpocess of building my recording studio and I need the money for other equipment. It is a great guitar with minor scracthes. The guitar plays beautiful and looks even better . Here is a little history on the Co-Classic series.....
Gibson model C-O is a classical-style instrument, designed for nylon strings. The slotted head and roller tuner arrangement is typical of classical guitar design. Like traditional classical guitars, the neck joins the body at the 12th fret (instead of the 14th, as is typical of most modern steel-stringed guitars). It also has a wider, flatter fingerboard than a typical steel-stringed guitar.
This C-0 model has a solid (not laminated) spruce top, and solid mahogany back and sides. Most other classical guitar makers put their brand names on a label inside the guitar, instead of on the headstock, as Gibson did on this model.
As a classical guitar, the Gibson C-0, is well-made. Gibson introduced this model in the 1960s in the response to the pop-folk boom of the time. Most of these instruments were bought by folkies who simply wanted something easier on the fingers than steel strings, rather than wanting to learn serious classical guitar technique.
The late, great, classically-trained jazz guitarist, Charlie Byrd, is pictured with a Gibson C-0 retrofitted with a primitive pickup on the cover of his late-1950s “Live at the Village Vanguard” album.
Contact me with any questions at all. I will post more pictures if needed.
