I was hoping someone might be able to help me with a problem I’m having identifying a guitar. I recently came across this obviously extremely old acoustic guitar. The Gibson headstock seems to match that of a mid 40s L-Series. The problem I’m having in identifying it Is because it seems to have at some point been given, and I can’t overstate this, the single worst paint job I may have ever seen on anything that’s had paint on it. It appears that the re-painting has been done on he body, as well also on the headstock. I realized after I took these pictures that I didn’t take pictures of the tailpiece and associated hardware, but it appears to all be original. It has one of the full trapeze style tail piece. I was hoping someone might be able to get back to me and at least start me in the process of identifying this guitar.
Thanks so much.
