This model was introduced in 1946, and with these features but with the old script "Gibson" on the headstock, then by late '47 the plastic parts were changed to gold and square neck was rounded. So despite the lack of a serial number this iis a pretty easy Gibson to pin with a date. Lots of surface scratches to the back, and some tight hairline cracks radiating out from beneath one of the knobs, but with original tuners, pickup, etc. Nice fat tone Original case included but it's a case in name only, you'll need something better if you're going to haul this steel around.
