Gibson 1940s 1950s Acoustic Guitar Wood Vintage L Needs Repair For Sale
Up for sale is a Gibson guitar as pictured---- I do not know much about it other than it appears to be the oldest one I could find on . Can't find any identifying markings etc. . Neck inlays look like pearl, the slats across the neck appear to be brass, the inlay in the bridge I would say is ivory. Everything looks original on this, tuners and strings as well. On the front the top edge needs repaired, all the wood looks to be there to do so it has just lifted with hairline crack. The back separated in same manner with a split, with this one as well it looks like a clean straight split and all wood is there to make repair. I've laid a straight rule on the neck and taken a close look as well and all appears to be straight. There are obvious surface marks on the wood. Guitar is solid other than in repair areas (it is not falling apart into shambles) I know in the right hands this will come back to be a beautiful guitar, I've hit the strings a few times and to me it still sounds great. Thank you for looking and HAPPY offerDING!!! My reserve should be no issue but is necessary from future experience on .
The Below I tried to provide information to answer most buyer's questions
buyers: By placing a offer you agree to 's terms for completing the sale. Lets both meet our requirements as seller and buyer. You want your item, I want my $$$$.
Me (the seller): I give the best photos and descriptions that I can. It isyour responsibility to decide exactly what the item is and it's condition from the pictures.If you have any questions or doubts at all please email me and ask me anything, I do my best at responding quickly, but try to give me sufficient time. I do not end items early for buyers. Iam in no way an expert in any of the items that I list, though I do try to be knowledgeable about what I am listing. I apologize for any glare in the pictures. I reserve the right to cancel the sale at any time as the item may be for sale locally.
International buyers:I will ship this item outside of the USA,ask for shipping price as itwill be different from what is quoted here. The buyer is responsible to aoffere by all their country's customs regulations and pay any associated fees.
Shipping and Handling: S&H includes, packing material (box, bubble wrap, peanuts etc), handling, & USPS fee. I package all items as I would want mine to be packaged.If you would like other shipping arrangements on a particular item, it shouldn't be a problem but let's discussit before you make a offer or the sale ends. My handling time has changed due to s policies, it's usually shipped out the day after payment or same day, but if for some reason I'm working and can't ship for 3-4 days I'm not going to get docked on my account because so. Shipping prices may not be the actual shipping cost, I often price my shipping by looking at other sales for the same item, please adjust your offerding if you do not agree with shipping cost.
Insurance: Optional and cost extra. Look at the chart at the bottom of this page for prices
Payment: I prefer paypal (even with the high fees). Please pay within 3 days.
Returns: I WILL RETURN YOUR ITEM IF THERE IS SOMETHING ACTUALLY WRONG OR IF I MISSED SOMETHING SIGNIFICANT THAT AFFECTS FUNCTIONALITY, BUT NOT BECAUSE YOU SIMPLY CHANGED YOUR MIND AND WANT A RETURN. HOWEVER, DUE TO 'S RIDICULOUS RETURN POLICY I WAS FORCED TO CHANGE MY LISTINGS TO NO RETURNS, (THEY DON'T EVEN OFER A ONE WEEK RETURN, IT'S EITHER 14, 30 OR 60 DAYS) YOU NEED TO LET ME KNOW WITHIN A REASONABLE AMOUNT OF TIME, LIKE 2-3 DAYS AFTER YOU GET THE ITEM, NOT 2 WEEKS!!! Look at my response I represent items as truthfully and accurately as I can, I don't have any negative response and will obviously work with you to make things right if there would be a problem, is making it harder and harder to sell on here. Only if I purposefully or greatly misrepresented an item, which I don't do. You pay shipping and handling both ways, money back. Returns are not preferred.
response: You do not need to ask me to leave it for you, after you leave me positive response , Iwill always leave you positive response.
If you notice a mistake in the listing please notify me ASAP so that it can be fixed, thank you for looking and best of luck!!
