This guitar was made in the German Democratic Republic (GDR). Someone outfitted her with Original Gibson hardware including P90 pickups. It was painted in a very nice sunburst. I have given this guitar to my very good friend John Paiva in a guitar swap. She has a very usable sound acoustically and electrically and I hope that John will have fun with this guitar. I surely enjoy his Tenor guitar that I got out of the swap.
