Gibson Blue Ridge 1972

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


I have my grandfather's Gibson Blue Ridge Guitar with serial number 805234 (it has a 2 beneath that leading me to believe it was a factory second?) Anyway, I think it dates to 1972. I think the specs varied for these models but I am curious to know what the nut is made out of. Is it bone or plastic?


Thanks for all of your help.

Hey Frankie, it is most likely plastic. It is hard to say though without having a look. Nuts are re-placeable...hard to say if it is original to the guitar or not. It should be easy enough to tell by looking at it.... or sticking a hot needle into it, perhaps!


The number 2 would indicate a factory 'second' and probably would have sold new 'at a discount'.


Nice guitars, I think!
