Late 1960s Sho Bud Double Neck Pedal Steel Guitar • Baldwin Crossover Model NICE
Welcome to this auction for a used Vintage GIBSON CG 520 Console Grand double neck steel guitar, Natural Oak, (serial # Q-0837), circa 1961. Gruhn's Guide to Vintage Guitars states that "This model has 2 8 string necks, oak body. PUs with "4-8-4" pole configuration, 2 knobs 2 push switches, 3-way switch, 4-way tone selector switch on each neck, black binding, black fingerboard, tuners arranged in pairs, raised black logo on front, natural oak finish," . Another Gibson informational webstie states: This model has a "4-8-4" humbucking pickup with non-adjustable poles, and "du-wah" and "audio cut-off" controls. You may have a dozen of these, but this is the first FACTORY 6 string 520 Console Grand I have seen. The original owner stated that he custom ordered this guitar from Gibson. Both nuts are for 8 strings. Obviously, there are two tuners missing per "headstock". However, both pickups only have pole pieces for 6 strings. The remaining four pole piece locations are pearloid inserts. Although Gibson's specs on "normal" CG 520's construction indicate oak wood, this looks to me more like Korina., I am not a wood expert, but being custom order, could be. This steel is in excellent condition! With the exception of the jack plate (which is metal) and possibly the pots, to the best of my knowledge, this steel is original. (I can't see any date codes on the tone pot, and the volume pot is underneath a wood support, where I can't see anything concerning that pot. I can relay that the shaft on the volume pot is a little longer than the shaft on the tone pot, if that means anything) What I do know, is that, to the best of my understanding of how the steel is wired, all electronics seem to work as they are suppose to. Original case is in beautiful condition. As with most used items, there are a few light scars and scratches, but in this case, not many. Please email any questions. Now, have fun winning this "AS IS" auction!
