Are you really that big in a hurry? You're camera is shaky, calm down a bit buddy, and take a better picture.
I will soon perish from this lethal injection called love.

It's probably a webcam so the quality can't be the best

Have you tried on Gibson's website? You should be able to find it there.

Sorry. No, I am not shaky. Its just a crappy Camera. Actually works better at night with flash on. I will try uploading more decent photos soon.
Used to have a really good camera. Then my stepdad put it in the microwave...

I have no clue why he did it either.
but oh well.
at least it had no batteries in or its sd card
lol

but I tried the Gibson website, and it doesnt come up when i am viewing the acoustic models. The one I have may be very old.

Is there a serial number stamped on the back of the headstock? It looks like the label has fallen off inside the soundhole -- might it be floating around inside of your guitar? Even if you have a serial number though, my understanding is that gibson's numbers are hard to decipher anyway -- you might get an answer at your local shop or a gibson forum.

It's a great looking guitar -- whoever gave it to you must really love you or did something really rotten to you! Keep us posted!

It was given to me by my grandfather
I love him more than anything in the world.
I will be in luck here,
there is a serial number barely deciferable on the back of the headstock

woah
according to this
http://www.provide.net/~cfh/gibson.html#serial
mine was made somewhere from 1926-1927
...i am suprised it is still intact
I think i should call gramps and ask him how to properly take care of it.

Is that an adjustable bridge on your guitar? If it is I would guess that it was probably made in the 60s -- Gibson went with the adjustable bridges in the 50s and 60s. Either way, you've got a great guitar there with loads of sentimental value! Congratulations!

He was being stupid.
I plan to practice with this guitar some, treasure it, and also save up for an elec.
