J&J Student OO sized Guitar w/ Geib case in Cincinatti for $375

I don't recognize this brand or the fret markings on this guitar but it looks pretty darn nice. It is a 14 fret to the body guitar not a 12 fret so it is closer to a Martin or Gibson than a Harmony or Kay of the period. Looks well made.

The Geib case is a nice plus too.

This is an old vintage solid wood guitar that is set up as a Hawaiian lap guitar or it can be played as a regular guitar. The top is spruce and I believe the back and sides are mahogany. It is ladder braced.

It comes with the original Geib hard shell case with purple lining. Also in the case was a Kamiki Hawaiian Guitar Method Book dated 1928.

Other items in the case with this guitar are a box of Mapes Guitar Strings, a metal slide bar, 3 Nick Manoloff finger picks and two thumb picks.

The guitar is like a Martin 00 or Gibson L-00 size. It is 14 1/4" at the lower bout, 18" body length, upper bout is 10 3/8", depth is about 3 3/4"".

Headstock says J & J Student with pearloid covering on headstock. Plays and sounds like some old 1930's - 40's Kalamazoo guitars I have played. Nice beefy neck, no truss rod.

$375 cash & carry
