Need help identifying the guitar model.

Recommended Posts

It is a Gibson Mark series, likely an MK-35. They were made from about 1975 to about 1978. This particular one is missing the rosette around the sound hole and the pickguard has been changed.

That bridge is... interesting.  First time I've ever seen one of these.

They actually gave you three saddles with each mk series guitar for play height. 

these had fan bracing much like a classical guitar . Or the kasha Ovation 
 

there was the 35, 53, 72 . And 81  and a bowtie version 99  5 models

Placement of the pickguards is . . . umm, interesting, too. Kind of got a yin-yang thing going on there.

And someone enjoyed playing it enough to wear some divots into the fretboard, as well.

 If I recall, one of the upper end Mark series guitars came with a removable pickguard.

I think they were shipped with no guard and the owner had the choice of adding it or not. I have a couple.

Those got adhesive on the back or did those slide under the sound hole ring?

Hello, greetings from Brazil. I have a MK-72 with no guard and can’t find one. Do you sell this?
