    Description

    1940 Gibson ES-150 Sunburst Archtop Electric Guitar. Very early Gibson archtop electric. Appears to be an ES-150, but may be a conversion as there are added soundposts between tone bars and back, and pickup is cut through parallel tone bars. Pickup controls and input jack are period correct. Non-original bridge. Four repaired top cracks. No back or side cracks. Tuners are modern replacements, missing grommets. Original fret are very worn. Pickups work, but pots are scratchy. Hard case included. Condition: Fair.
