1948 Gibson BR-9 Lapsteel
1948 Gibson BR-9 Lapsteel incl. case
Early model of the famous Gibson BR-9 Lapsteel, Gibsons bestselling lapsteel ever. Excellent condition for its age and all original. The tuners are still original and stay in tune just perfectly fine, only some tuner-tips have been changed. Untouched solderjoimtes inside, both IRC-pots are dated 39th week of 1948. 1x Volume and 1x Tone-control, all original plastic parts with no cracks.
