Hey Guys, In about 2 days I am headed to Kentucky to visit the girlfriend's family and there in an old Gibson acoustic flat-top that she has there. When she told me what it was the eyebrows raised a slight bit. LOL. I do not know what Model it is but it has *The Gibson* in cursive (Pre 1949) on the head with a Pat date of Feb 1908 and a manufacture date of Mar 30 1906. (strange that manufacture date is before patent date).
I have been searching like a madman trying to find info for vintage Gibsons this old but most of the info I have found so far only really goes back to about the 1930s. Anything found prior to that seems to be vague and does not provide much detailed info.
Anyone know of sites or links where one can research this thing. As said I can find Gibson info but stuff this old I'm having a hard time. Figured there may be someone here that knows.
I will only be there for a few days and will post some pics of it when I get back.
