Hi everyone, I live in Sweden and have an Epiphone Jazz guitar 12-string from 1914 in mint condition. I can't find any serial number. The guitar was made in Poland, but i want to know the specific Model name. The label says "Gitara Jazz typ III". How many guitars were made in Poland and why ? Where in Poland was the factory? How about the value today?
Wondering if I can get the history behind this stunning guitar if I ask here at the source. I purchased this beautiful ES-335 125th Anniversary at a local guitar shop in Manchester, NH on Saturday 9/11/21. They are a Legitimate Authorized Gibson Dealer. When I brought her home (I named her Penelope), I tried to do some research online but couldn't find absolutely anything other than a couple of pics from NAMM 2019. I posted a a few pics on Reddit and someone from Gibson was able to give me a bit of information which is as follows: "Was supposed to start in Memphis since it was a 335. When we moved to Nashville the Supreme's were running but the 335’s were behind. We were focusing on getting the quality on the 335’s and didn’t want to start a fancy guitar. By the time we started running them it was almost past our 125th anniversary. So we never finished the run. Not sure how many we actually made, but I’m almost certain it wasn’t 125 of them. So in short, it’s a rare guitar for sure with an interesting story" I guess what I'm trying to find out is: How many of these were actually made / What number out of the batch is the one I own / Was it supposed to come with case candy and if so what? I bought it new but didn't get much in the case other than an original picture from the factory and the warranty card. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
Have a Gibson BR-9 that I'm wanting more information on. I know little about it and I'm needing to give it once over. Pots are intermittent and one knob is slightly cracked. I would like to keep it all original equipment if possible. Thanks for your help in advance.IMG_20180712_072246.webp
