For your consideration, an 1947 Gibson BR-4 Lap Steel with the original GEIB hardshell case.
This round-neck steel plays and sounds fantastic! The tuners are original, but the buttons have been replaced with period correct replacements. The electronics appear to be all original but there are a few places that have been resoldered. The pickup is HOT and sounds HUGE! Both the volume and tone controls work perfectly with no scratchy spots. The original bridge cover is missing. No cracks, no refinish! No signs of previous repairs.
This is a rare double-bound model. Most have just top binding!
The original case is in great shape! All original latches, hinges, and the handle are intact as well as the GEIB badge.
