  1. The house was full of stuff - many guitars and amps. The strap is a dead man's, and I heard back from George Gruhn about this guitar. It seems to be a one-off custom made in 1961 based off of the ES-140.
  2. Yeah - the serial number points to 1961. It wasn't just "found" in a house though - he's a project manager for a company that buys foreclosures, short sales, etc and apparently this house had a death with no next of kin and sat empty.
  3. Here's a link to a few more pics. http://www.flickr.com/photos/96716975@N08/
  4. I don't believe it's at an angle, but I'll try uploading a few more pics, thanks!
  5. Hello, My name is Jon Decker and my friend found this mystery guitar in a house he recently bought, serial number 39312. It is hollow, with a bigsby, and a florentine cutaway. The guitar is a shorter scale, with beautiful figuring on the neck (which looks like a 3 piece. It is in beautiful condition. My thoughts were initially a Les Paul florentine, but it it doesn't say "Les Paul" on the headstock, then because of the shorter scale I thought ES-140. The only thing that throws me off is that most ES's I see don't carry the "custom" branding and have a dog-eared P-90 instead of the the humbucker that this one has. The only thing I am fairly certain of is that it was made in 1961. This guitar is in excellent condition. Any help or information would be of great assistance!
