This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2007-12-01)
Price : US $281.99
This is an old Gibson acoustic electric classical guitar. I have struggled to put any information to it since there is none on the inside of the guitar. I think it might be a C-1E which were manufactured between 1960 and 1968. If my guess on the model is correct, there were only 675 made according the 'Bluebook Of Guitars'. It's difficult to read the serial number. It looks like it is 3558 but there could be another digit prior to the 3 but its real hard to tell (I got many people to look at it). If I understand the Gibson serialization properly, if the serial is just those 4 digits it would be a 1960, and even if there is another digit and that digit was as high as a 9 the guitar would date no later than 1964. The guitar has a lot of cosmetic wear including three cracks on the top, none of which have extreme separation. One runs from the bottom of the guitar to the soundhole, another runs from the bottom of the guitar to the bridge, and the other runs from the bridge up about 2.5 inches toward the soundhole. In addition, there is a good bit of lacqer checking. There are electronics on the guitar but they don't work. Everything else seems to be fine on the guitar. Buyer pays $25 shipping and handling. Will not ship out of 48 states.
