  1. Met someone in the business and he looked at my guitar. He confirmed it to be an ES-150 with a changed pickup. Dating to early 1950's. He said it had a paper label which is missing. Pretty much confirms what you had said. Thanks so much to everyone who posted and helped out.
  2. Thanks everyone. I have more photos but my son posted and said only 3 photos were allowed (?)
  3. Would this date late 40's to early 50's? In restoring should I change the pickup cover to black> Is this a job for Gibson? Thanks.
  4. Thanks. All information and opinions are appreciated. I am not a music guy so I am flying blind. I had been told that the pickup had been changed. In restoring same, should I replace the pickup to the original black? Also pick guard is damaged so I assume it should be replaced? And needs restringing. Is this something I should send to Gibson, or can a local music store handle it? Thanks again. Larry
  5. Hey guys, I bought this older Gibson (ES-?) and I'm having trouble narrowing down the exact model. I haven't been able to locate the serial number. The body is 17" by 21" and nearly 3.5" deep. I'm posting a few pictures of the guitar. There's also a photo of a tag listing work done at some point. If another picture or some additional spec would help, let me know. Thanks in advance for any info you can provide.
