Regular price $22,000

1939 Gibson Recording King Ray Whitley Rosewood in excellent condition.  One of the most rare big body Gibsons of the 1930s.  Has had a neck reset and wears period Grover 98 tuners in place of the original Klusons.  The lower bout top to side joint was reglued at some point in a two inch section, neatly done.  Finish is all original and in good shape, bridge, plate, all braces, frets, and pickguard are all original.  Has a sound like no other Gibson.  Most similar to the AJs of the same era although with the shorter 24.75" scale.  A unique and most excellent guitar.  Includes non-original hard case.
