I've a Gibson made 1953 don't know the model it has a replacement back - I was told by the seller it belonged to a Honky Tonk picker. It is really well worn - it has da sound - that gorgeous Gibson nasal flavor. But it can be played at the end of the fret board and sounds sweet with a lot of overtone. The neck alas is too narow for my big paws so I be happy to trade it. Also have a pre ww1 Vega Tubby 5 Strng - very nice sound. I would happily trade both for a Martin set up for strumming only. I am getting too lazy for that hard stuff f picking etc.
