I bought this from a store in Ft Worth Texas thanks to a girl named Amanda H. who helped me get this through great tribulation under seemingly impossible odds. I am interested in the history of this particulair guitar serial#1141, if anyone knows who previously owned this i would love to know. This guitar has the thicker body design however it has the wider horns so i am assuming that dates the manufacturing date of this guitar somewhere in mid to late 1977, it has a one piece fingerboard although i am not sure if its ebony or rosewood. I am pretty sure that everything is original and stock, the tuning pegs are schaller, and the volume/tone knobs are black which remind me of the gibson knobs they came stock with before the close down and re-organization in 78. This guitar also came with an anvil flight case with a nice plush velvety yellowish gold interior that fits the guitar perfectly, so whoever owned this before must have been a serious touring musician who took great care of this guitar. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Kaman who with his kind emails helped me in determining some of these details, thank you again for your time and help.
I am in a band called The Chinese Stars (www.TheChineseStars.com), or if your a Bean player on myspace, the url for ours is http://www.myspace.com/thechinesestars. Thank you again Amanda from Ft Worth!
