Description:
Elvis Presley Likely-Used "Prop" Acoustic Guitar from Spinout (MGM, 1966). A Gibson LG-1, Serial number 895316, manufactured in 1959, painted to simulate wood grain, Gibson logo painted over on the headstock (so MGM wouldn't have to pay licensing fees when using it onscreen) but still somewhat visible, included with a vintage 1959-era case. This appears to be the same guitar Elvis uses in the pool party scene when he sings "Beach Shack" as he portrayed Mike McCoy. Please note the guitar, 39" in length, is in somewhat poor condition with cracks on the body and paint loss on the pickguard; the case is also in somewhat tattered condition due to age.
Provenance: This guitar was originally sold at the now-famous 1970 MGM Auction where the current consignor bought it, and though there is no concrete proof that this is the exact same guitar, it does match up well to the one Elvis uses in the film. It could have also been used in other MGM productions, as it was made in 1959.
