Identify if this is a Gibson guitar


Recommended Posts

Can anyone recognize this giataru. I inherited it from my grandfather. He bought in 1954. The guitar is bad retaurirana 1987 and then painted over. At the top it said Gibson guitars.

I hope that you will help me to determine what this type of guitar.

Very old Gretsch (non-electric) Archtops, had a very similar headstock. But, as of yet,

I've not found one, with that type of fret markers. Although, in the photo, some of them

look to be painted on (by the owner?). So...??? Could be a cheap copy, of a Gretsch, too???

The back of, the headstock to neck transition, looks more "Asian" made, to me. But, who knows?
