The Gibson BR-6 was described as being "Modern As Tomorrow" when it arrived on the scene in 1949. The one seen here is from approximately 1950. This is a great player with a wonderful sounding single coil,alnico magnet pickup. The volume and tone pots have a nice even taper. The Cremona Brown finish and sunburst top add up to that classic Gibson look. As it was in 1950, the BR-6 remains a solid sender in the wonderful world of lap steels.
