A rare bird, this is a 1918 Gibson A-3 model with original blonde finished top with an A-4 style rosette (ivoroid ring surrounded by marquetry). The body is bound on either side, and shows no signs of repair: equipped with original hardware; some binding shrinkage present. The 14" scale mahogany neck has an ebony fretboard with small fret wire, "curlicue" pearl inlay on peghead overlay; neck was likely reset (small portion of driver side binding appears to be replaced); comfortable V profile with great playability. Included in sale is original hard case.
