Here is a little gem. A 1956, or so the case is marked, Gibson BR-9 Lap Steel Electric Guitar. It is in great condition. The tuners are clean, the guitar sounds great, all the electronics work great and it has it's original case. There is a small crack on the bridge cover that I couldn't get to photo well. It's pretty small and purely cosmetic. Othet than that, it's beautiful vintage piece...
