    They might take a $599.00 offer......

    It has 50's-early 60's tuners-dovetail hammered but can be re-done! But a wee bit pricy as that came on a low end TG.

    The tuners are almost brand new- they are impressed GROVER DELUXE- they are not even 1950s Kluson units. It's amazing how blind some of these sellers are- seeing Gibson not Grover.

    Thanks I didn't zoom in to look, they look just like the tuners on my 50's Martin at a glance!

    You could stick it on a The Loar archtop body and have HALF a 1932 Gibson tenor! Hopefully, a playable half....

    Granted, you would also have more in it than it would be worth......

    I wonder if some one did a six string conversion on an old Gibson tenor.

    Anything is possible except the sale of that neck at that price. That is impossible even though there is one born every minute.

    I do know a guy that has been re-necking Martin 12-strings for years. He's gotten pretty good at it too.

    Either someone did a conversion or the body got real mangled? I've seen quite a few Martin conversions taking them archtop C + F guitars from the pre-war era and putting a flat top on them?
