    Description

    Circa Mid 1940's Gibson ES-300 Sunburst Archtop Electric Guitar. Moderate finish checking throughout. Hardware and all metal parts show heavy corrosion. Pickup is loose due to rusted screw. Fingerboard binding is loose and frets show heavy oxidation and corrosion toward end of board. Upper bass bout/shoulder has long crack and large puncture with wood missing. This area of impact is about the size of a business card. The back of neck and headstock have been over-sprayed. Pickup has output but the electronics are in poor semi-functioning condition. Sold in "as-is" condition for restoration. No case included. Condition: Poor.
