GUEST,Richard Bridge (cookie and format C) Gibson 'Street 12' 1935? (7) RE: Gibson 'Street 12' 1935? 25 Nov 02

He knows guitars - he's a semi-pro folk musician and has been since the 60s.

I gather from his description that it is twisted - and I thought he conveyed the body was distorted as well as the neck.

I think the strings were longer than standard scale length (like the "D" Ovations) and also thicker than standard heavies - and its a twelve.

Location - North Kent, England (about 40 miles from London).

Do you know if there was a thing officially called a "Street 12"?
