SOLD - Gibson BR9 Lap Steel Early 1950s perhaps 1952

Shipping calculated at checkout.

This BR9 is in excellent condition - very clean for its age.  

The only change is the output jack plate and the screws that hold it on the guitar.

There is a little finish wear on the bottom edge, see the pics.

The case was so funky when I got the guitar.  With a bunch of elbow grease, I got a lot of it off.  It looks like the case was subject to moisture on the outside, but the inside is really nice.  All the latches, hinges and the handle work great.  

A slide that came with the steel is included.  You can see where the original owner kept it, tucked under the strings near the pickup.
