There are numerous pics & a LOT of information to load--PLEASE bepatient. If the pics & text don't load for some reason please email me & Iwill email all text & pics to you. Also, any updates and/or corrections to theinformation will be listed in any text here at the very top or at the verybottom for sure & may or may not be shown in the info in the middle due tothe way I put my site together. I try very hard to give the most accurate &comprehensive information I can and this guitar--as with all instruments Isell--is offered in good faith. I am not always able to verify any or allinformation I am told by the folks I buy instruments from and occasionally Iget incorrect info given to me--I presume in good faith--by the seller. Ilike to think I usually catch the obviously incorrect info & offer correctedinfo--undoubtably there may be times inaccurate info may inadvertently be passed on by me--again in good faith. I very much appreciate any and all corrections any knowledgeable folks can help me out with. Please list sources I can use to verify if possible--opinions sent in without any references may--or may not--be added to the description if I am unable to verify the info. No one is an expert in all areas & I--like everyone else--have much to learn inmany many areas. I encourage you to do your own research & come to your ownconclusions. Please feel free to ask any questions before bidding. I striveto be an honest and fair seller and to fulfill my end of the deal--all I askis for buyers to be honest and fair buyers and to fulfill their end of thedeal. This is what makes ebay work great for all of us. I have accepted returns of instruments 4 or 5 times over the last 10 years due to defects I should have seen and described but inadvertently left out or overlooked for whatever reason. It is RARE for me to overlook or fail to describe and/or show a problem but IF I do miss a SIGNIFICANT problem or defect I will make it right & take care of you as best I can & be as fair to both of us as possible. I do NOT accept returns because the buyer has changed his mind about the purchase. The last guy I accepted a return from ignored my specific request that he be certain to loosen the string tension way down loose & naturally he left it tuned up and the guitar suffered damage by the time I got it back. I did not even bother telling him about the damage because of the way he'd already treated me. So I've lost my sense of humor in dealing with un-reasonable people. I am about as easy-goin' a fellow as you can meet so I get along with 999 people out of 1000. I admit my mistakes--just don't jerk me around & we'll get along fine. I deal in antique and vintage instruments--many of which are very old and the woods and glues can be very very dry & fragile and can be easily damaged by poor packing and/or handling and/or people that don't follow directions or otherwise know what they are doing. Therefore I NO LONGER accept returns of antique and vintage instruments. If you do not like my terms that is perfectly OK--I understand. I encourage you to please take your business elsewhere. Please do NOT ignore my terms & then expect to dictate to me what will or won't happen with our deal. I am open to reasonable suggestions depending on the circumstances etc. If you want a shiny new guitar go to Guitar Center or Musician's Friend etc. If you are a reasonable fair-minded adult buyer or looker and you are looking for a used vintage Guitar then "WELCOME" I am very pleased to meet you. Good luck and best wishes--hooker77 ( acoustic Gibson army navy special gy model round hole flat top arch top vintage pre war old antique early guitar blues jazz collectors players rare )

-With recent rains the humidity has increased significantly & I now hear some fret buzz at times--it is a wood instrument--it is normal. Also note that shipping is a flat-rate $55.00 (not $50.00 as stated down below) plus insurance which is required. Thank you!-
