One of our favorite Gibson flattop models, super playable thanks to the short scale and with that iconic Gibson sunburst. This example has been played but generally well cared for. There is no finish wear but there are few very scuffs here and there that don't show up in the photos. The frets are in great shape and have lots of life left in them. The L. R. Baggs Element Active VTC pickup gives you controls at your fingertips, just inside the upper edge of the soundhole. A highly versatile round-shouldered Dreadnought with the characteristic percussive rhythm tone that you just can't get with a long-scale Martin-style Dreadnought.
