Gibson TG-37 1936
Here we have a Gibson TG-37, circa 1936. The Gibson TG-37 was produced in very limited numbers. The specifications will be familiar to Gibson enthusiasts, as it essentially features an L-30/L-37 body with a tenor neck and banjo tuners.
The single-bound body has a carved spruce top with slim F-holes. The (flat)back and sides are made of mahogany. The narrow mahogany neck has an unbound rosewood fretboard with pearl dot inlays. On the headstock, we find the famous white stencil Gibson logo and original Grover Banjo-style tuners.
Inside the body, there is a label indicating that this instrument was completely restored by "Borko Dragojlovir" in 1988. It looks like his work included several crack repairs on the back of the body, refinishing of the body, and a neck reset.
The previous owner was a banjo player and played in "open-G" on the Gibson TG-37. The instrument is still strung and tuned in open "G".
Comes with a vintage chipboard case.
