That's a beautiful guitar, and an evolving cool story to go with it.
How cool is that.
Perhaps Irvin will be able to solve the mystery of the mark??
Here's my closely related 1952 ES-350N....
Having lived in Buffalo, that isn't as surprising as it should be. Very cool though!
Gorgeous. I bet they tricked OP into paying more than that thing cost brand new....
Unreal, you hit the jackpot! Have many years of enjoyment.
390.00 was the price of a new car back then.
The Holy Grail but I too will be playing my ZBD. Which is not a bad thing.
OUTSTANDING! Cheers man. The stuff dreams are made of!
Absolutely gorgeous instrument! It may sound blasphemous, but i would rather
have this than an LP any day.
Not even close. The average price of a car in 49 was more in the range of $1200.
How did I miss this? Oh yeah, I’ve been sick. Beautiful piece!
Damn that's pretty!
OP, did you try to get in touch with Irvin?
Yes, I did, I wrote him a letter...now we have to wait!
Man what a beauty, congrats!
that is an amazing piece, Mazeltov!!!!
I don't even play jazz, but somethin' about those big fat guitars........
Then again, I like my women curvy too so I guess it works out.
