Hey Everyone,
My dad gave me a guitar that was once his...it is a Gibson acoustic-electric, and my dad got it as a gift about 40 years ago. I can't identify what year it is, model, or what it's value is...
I'd appreciate it if you all could help me...

Here are some pictures...

















Thanks!

are you ****ing with me, or being serious....hard to tell when a guy says he'll pay $10 for it, even though I know its worth more than that haha.
#29
the fact that your dad give you a guitar that he's been playing for 40 years is the real value of the gift. How could you even think in selling it or knowing how much it costs, that's sick.
You play with your soul man, not whit expensive or good year.

I'm not trying to sell it, just trying to identify it...

the funny thing is, its in pretty good condition, because he only played for ONE year...he just never got rid of it.

My parents know nothing about guitars, and have always wondered about this thing.

I looked it up, and the 1942 model isn't electric.
Can you find a serial number anywhere?



I wont have the serial number for a few hours...I'll post it then....

I do remember, however, looking for it at one time, and I couldn't find it anywhere...BUT, I may have concluded that there was no way it was in the sound hole, because it was virtually impossible to see.
