This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-10-04)
Price : US $350.00
We are offering for auction a VINTAGE GIBSON MASTERTONE SPECIAL GUITAR. WE BELIEVE THIS GUITAR IS FROM THE 1930'S AND MAY BE AN HAWAIIAN LAP SLIDE STYLE AS IT HAS NO FRETS. Inside the guitar at the base of the neck is faintly stenciled ''S636'' (or at least that's what it looks like). Overall, this is a solid guitar but it does have a few issues; however, they are small. We believe the guitar has a spruce top with mahogany sides and neck. The square neck is straight and attached solidly to the body. I put a straight edge on the fingerboard and it has an 1/8'' or LESS bow to it. The body is 14 3/4'' wide and 24 1/2'' scale. This guitar has some nicks and scratches here and there; the top finish has some crackling. The black tuning knobs all work but are brittle and rough feeling - one is missing. The bridge looks original. It has a fairly large crack with some new screws added - it is attached securely. (See close up picture.) The guitar comes with an old cardboard case. We don't know if the case is original and it is in poor conditon. All latches work and you could use it . RESERVED LOWERED.
We appreciate your looking at this old and rather rare Gibson. Email with questions.
