Archtop-Electric & Acoustic1963 Gibson Barney Kessel Regular

Sunburst, two piece maple back that shows both flame and some birds eye figuring plus flame maple sides all quite fetching. Laminated Sitka Spruce top also has great figuring. A nice wide neck guitar with a well done pro refret using factory correct frets. Nickel tailpiece and tuners with a gold period correct ABR-1 bridge. Later chrome covers over patent sticker pickups. These upper line Kessels are quite rare with 1414 shipped this year (about 150 shipped each year of the 60’s). They have 25.5" scale, full body depth, and are 17" wide for a full sound. This one has the original case, a few scratches but no real finish checking or buckle rash. Quite clean and pretty plus it sounds great. $6500
