This is an exceptional guitar! Cleary, the luthier’s at Gibson were having a good day when they made this one!  I took this guitar to the Kerrville Folk Festival years ago and Tom Russel, Ian Tyson and Nancy Griffith all tried to buy it from me.  It only has a batch # so dating this guitar is not precise, but it appears to be late 40’s.

This guitar has a deep rich balanced tone with sparkling high end and perfect intonation all the way up the neck.

Used on: Silhouette Against the Stars, River Road, The Last Day of Winter, Lettie’s Song, Old Joe Clark

Track: Silhouette Against The Stars
