One of our favorite Gibson flattop models, super playable thanks to the short scale and with that iconic Gibson sunburst. This example has just a little, and we mean very little, finish wear and the frets could pass for new. The L. R. Baggs Element Active 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. Nice original brown Gibson case.
