1931 Gibson TG-1

SKU: FIN 40 Categories: ,


This closet queen 1931 Gibson TG-1 (FON 40) is cleaner than your grandmother’s kitchen floor! This guitar features the enlarged body (14 3/8″ lower bout, 19 1/8″ body width) that premiered about 1930. This guitar shows hardly any signs of having been handled or played at all. Medium grain width Adirondack spruce top with finer grain at the very edges. Honduras Mahogany back, sides, and neck, original tuners, nut frets, bridge pins, and bridge saddle. The black endpin appears to be a replacement. The lightly made top and braces larger top area prefers a lighter stringing (.008, .012, .019-20, .024-25) for best sound and response. The original Geib case, with original key in its original envelope, is in very clean condition as well. A fine sounding time-machine example of my favorite version, 12 frets, of this iconic tenor guitar model.
