Literally was popping into only one store today due to time constraints and one of my favorite employees of that store was carrying this back to their sorting/pricing area. He’d been looking for their “pawn shop guy” aka one of the managers (used to work/own a pawn shop I guess) to verify what he thought of this donated guitar. Couldn’t find him, I ran into him at the most perfect time with him carrying -in his words- this “knockoff gibssson.”
It has been very well-used and unfortunately has a crack in the back. Late 50s, early 60s. Still trying to hammer down specific model but I’m happy with my “knockoff” purchase today.

@double00 yeah that’s the one! I’ve been trying to nail down specific year but serial number guides aren’t very helpful as Gibby has some repeating ones for some reason. Most of that model used different tuners, but 1958 used the ones on mine. But 58 isn’t one of the years the decoder pointed to for my SN. Obviously someone over the past 50+ years could have upgraded/replaced the tuners. Pics spoilered as I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea.
