Factory order number unknown
beautiful and all original natural top A-3 with The Gibson and small vine in pearl in the peghead. The top, back and fingerboard are bound in ivoroid. The original pickguard is tortoise; no repairs or cracks or scratches but neck has a slight, forward bow which we are straightening. This should be a powerful one when made right.
