    thanks for all this great Givens info!

    Re: 30's Oval Hole Gibson - Model?

    sweet, thanks, guys! Yes, the saddle sags as there's a crack on the bass side. I guess Bernunzio's is really an A-50, as it looks identical.

    Re: 30's Oval Hole Gibson - Model?

    yea, there's a slight blemish where the pickguard was, but not bad. This is the first oval hole I've owned, so likely to keep it for now. It's in practically new condition, so it needs some banging...

    New friend!

    No label, no serial or FON #s.

    I know it's 30s from the headstock and logo, but wondering if anyone knows more. It's in near mint condition with original case....

    Cherokee Lady - Bobby Osborne

    Re: Gigs Cancelled - Health and Safety
