Default 1951 Gibson CF-100

Fantastic example of a rare 1950's CF-100 cutaway acoustic. This is a very rare offering. Guitar is in good-very good condition (especially at a fair price). Serviced by Mike Lennon, a former Gibson Luthier who does work for many big stars. I have added (but can remove with no trace- have original peg) a fantastic-sounding Sunrise Pickup AND Pendulum AKG microphone for live performance. This is the ultimate guitar for a player who performs live and wants a soulful guitar that has beautiful, full tone, rather than the the thin piezo sound. Comes with the Superior Instrument hardshell case shown in pictures. It plays well enough that I assumed that I had had the frets done- but seems as if they are original....and very playable! Asking $3900. Paypal. Buyer pays shipping to USA. https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/

I saw Jackson Brown playing his CF 100e while viewing the tribute concert for Bruce Springsteen. For sure a very cool iconic acoustic / electric Gibson.
Best to you on the sale.

In my humble opinion this is still the most aesthetically beautiful guitar Gibson ever made. Wish I were in a position to move on this.

Default these are great

and the necks on them are to die for. has the crack next to the soundhole been evaluated to determine if the neck block is slipping? is there an endpin jack and has it been enlarged?
