1965 Gibson B-15

I owned this guitar for one day.

Found this in a thrift store for $30, in fair shape except for the tuners. After replacing them I turned it the next day at my friendly local music store. I knew that I could have probably gotten more for it on CL but Mark has given me many breaks over the years.

This was the “dorm room” Gibson in the sixties: durable, a bit overbuilt, comfortable to hold and play—perfect for the beginner. Most students quickly gave up on learning the guitar so these are usually in pretty good shape, with the frets only slightly worn on the first three frets.

Here is a sprightly demo, in the “dorm room” style:
