Stunning 1st year Banner Gibson guitar - this is the finest example you could possibly fine, a true investment piece.
Everything is original, the neck has never been off. The setup is perfect with huge tone.
This time period is the most collectible of the production years. Often called "Banner Era" guitar, Gibson's from this time period have a golden banner on the headstock with "Only a Gibson is Good Enough." Wartime production numbers are a fraction of what they were in 1950s and 1960s so these guitars are very rare. Collectors report that these guitars are more lightly built and therefore more resonant. .
