We were so excited when we got this nice old Gibson and it's orig case. It is hard to 'date' this with serial #'s, so with a phone call to Gibson they confirmed that it is all original and the case is original to it too. They confirmed that it is a 1965! Some normal wear, but sure not all beat up!

    Beautiful, now there's a rare find! 65' with the original quilted maple back and sides in cherry finish, original "DOVE" truss rod cover plate, adjustable saddle and parallel pearl inlay on the fingerboard, with original case? Mna it don't get no better than this! Can you say $7K!

    Thanks Signaholic, you added alot of great information! Yeah it's prob worth about that.. sounds great too! Nice to find something that hasn't been messed with! An old Vet owned it and loved his music alot! Bet he is playing for a much better crowd now!

    Well when you think this was one of the last Kalamazoo, Michigan guitars the original Gibson Co. built! Everything was soon to change for the worse.
