Hello. Up for auction is a 1959 Gibson Country Western. This auction also includes a hardshell case.
We recently took this guitar in on trade from a local collector. He has owned it since the early 70's and has taken great care of it.
This guitar is all original with a few exceptions. It had Schaller tuners, a Barcus Barry under saddle pickup, and a strap button installed along the way. All of these minor mods are compeltely functional. Everything else on this guitar besides those three improvements are original from the factory. The non-original hardshell case is an older model and is also fully functional.
This guitar is in great condition. It shows only minimal signs of play wear anywhere and is a solid 7/10. It has a nice petina and shows the standard finish checking typical of an almost 50 year old guitar. There are the occassional dents and dings here and there that add to the vibe of the guitar, but nothing significant. We just set it up and it plays incredibly well with super low action.
This gutiar has Brazilian rosewood bridge and fretboard and tons of mojo. It's got an amazing mahogany tone that you can only get out of an eloquently aged instrument such as this one.
I listed this guitar a week ago and it did not meet reserve. This relisting has a reserve much ower than what the bidding came to the last time. Do
This guitar is sold (sold on 2008-10-21)
