  1. I don't know if this is an authentic Gibson or what it really is? I don't know if this is a real Gibson or a homemade instrument with a Gibson logo.. It plays and sounds great, but I can't seem to find anything else quite like it online. the shape seems pretty close to some 40s versions, but the construction and logo don't seem quite right. I bought it some 20-25 years ago, and didn't know anything about it then - or now for that matter. Does anyone recognize this? I plan to get rid of it soon but need to know what it really is!
  2. Do any of you know how I might date this lap steel? I believe it's a BR9 from the early 50s but that's just a guess. Thanks! https://drive.google.com/file/d/1CHBM9Ac_zVBGP-ee6ws2dMv-QeTff6MQ/view?usp=drivesdk
  3. This forum has not been getting much attention lately which is a shame. I think it may be a good idea to add ukuleles, lap steels and maybe some other instruments such as stand up bass and hawaiian guitar (maybe dobro covers this)to the Mandolins, Banjos and Dobros list. Or keep the Mandolin/Banjo/Dobro as a Bluegrass section and have another one for instruments no longer being produced. I'll start it off with my 1928 uke. I know some of the members in the acoustic forum have some real nice vintage ones.
