1939 J 200

Individual "bone bearings" instead of a one piece saddle. I think all the J200 of that vintage were like that but not sure. My 1939 J55 has them but I have seen J55's of the same year with a one piece saddle.

 

Very nice. Thanks for posting.

Forgive my ignorance but what is that above the tuners on the back of the headstock? A strapholder?

Could this be the long lost position #6?

 

 

 

Strap tie down or Rope tie down.. I had a 38 sj200 with the same item.. how ever.. mine was not Brazilian..

I ran vintage shops that carried things like '34 HD28s and Gibson Trojans. I promise you no guitar sounds like $80,000 or even $30,000. The cachet is owning something rare, or something made with woods no longer available at the same quality level.

 

If you want an amazing sounding Gibson acoustic, find a banner logo 1943 J45 and I promise it will outshine this used Porsche, and still leave lots of cabbage for dinner.
