    Default F-9 Reverb

    Thought it was a reasonable price, even with the cosmetic deficiency. Label inside reads Master Model, I thought. Really unfamiliar with Gibsons of this era. Not well enough to judge the price, anyway.

    I'm willing to bet that the tuners are Schallers. It's not a bad price. I actually like the minimalist look of these.

    Thanks Mike. I value your opinion. Thank you for your response. Comes with a 14 day trial period. Made a 85% offer, he accepted and I just got it!

    BTW, I couldn't see any pics of the tuners from the back side. What indication do you have they are Schallers?

    Yes they are Schaller tuners. It arrived and sounds great! I'm real impressed with the sound and the build. Called Gibson and asked about that small wear spot where the previous owner's pinkie finger used to land. They said to leave it. They went so far as to say, they wouldn't even recommend Gibson refinishing it. So, I won't argue with the experts. The pick guard goes back on and I'm in business.
