Brief Description

This guitar was made in the Gibson Factory in Kalamazoo in 1939 for the Recording King line of guitars sold through Montgomery Ward. The serial number is EW-1583. This was the top of the line M-6 model which is similar to the M_5 except that the M-6 has gold hardware. Solid carved spruce top and curly maple back and sides. These guitars have the big 17 inch wide lower bout like the Gibson L-5 of the period. Everything about this guitar is original except one little machine head bushing on the G string. Original hard shell case comes with it. There are no cracks and no issues whatsoever. It plays extremely well and the action is jazz low. Frets are hardly worn and there is no fret buzz anywhere on the neck. Sound is arch top sweet and full. Own a 30's Gibson made L-5 for 1/5 the price!
