I will have an opportunity to bid on this old Gibson guitar at auction tonight. What model is it? What is this beater worth?
Could be a 30s L-00 model? 40s model. 50s J-45. Something like that.
The finish is check marked and cracked on all surfaces. There is planking on the front. There is slight warping on the top. Neck is straight. Tuner knobs are broken. With good tuners and new strings I think it would be playable.
I know some of you here are into vintage guitars. Should I bid? If so, what kind of money? Or should I just watch it sell to someone else?
Thanks in advance for any thoughts and ideas.
