Gibson A Custom

  • Excellent Condition
  • Year: circa 1917
  • Includes Soft Shell Case
  • Serial #: 37677


One-of-a-kind to say this least, this Gibson A dates to 1917 by serial number present on label; we are told the top was replaced by Rigel at some point. Features a wide grained sunburst top w/ good arch; equipped with later adjustable ebony bridge, later Gibson stamped tailpiece; label present inside. Gibson 12 fret, 14" scale neck w/ multipiece scroll; serial number #37647 stamped on reverse of peghead (factory error), ebony fingerboard w/ extension; appointed with pearl inlay on peghead (slant Gibson script & flower pot), and fancy fret markers up and down the extended fingerboard. Entire instrument was oversprayed at time of restoration; evidence of back cracks under finish present. A throaty sounding instrument with modern playability and futuristic aesthetics.
