Jill Gibson (born June 18, 1942) is an American singer, songwriter, photographer, painter and sculptor.
It had the basic Kluson strip tuners and P-90 pickup. The reason I had purchased it in the first place was that I was trying to learn a new genre of music - Growing up as a teenager in the '80's I gravitated to hard rock and heavy metal. These guitars play fast and loud which is great, but when trying to learn chord shapes and progressions, I wanted something more boxy, something with a little more history. After attending several guitar shows and being exposed to all makes, models, eras and brands, I found that I was most interested in Gibson.
Not only because of the many shapes and styles, but because of the company's rich history. and Foreign patent stamps, this Virzi Tone Producer was removed only after opening-up the mandolin.
The most amazing fact about Gibson is that they were first to market with the very first electric guitar, the 1936 ES150 (although many sources state that the first ES150's were shipped starting in 1937).
If follows there is a third letter E, it stands for Electric.
Exceptions: Some high-end models and lap steels from 1939-1940 have been added the letter A, to the prefixes D, E or F.
1935-1937: Letter between the batch number and the order number. 0123 A5 1938-1941: Two or three letters before batch number. If there is a second character follows it is the code for the type of the instrument.
(G = Gibson, K = Kalamazoo, W = Recording King (Montgomery Wards).
