    The tuners- made by Kluson show it to be WW2 era. I assume with that bound maple back it is an A-50.

    It looks like a 1941 A-50 to me, there should be a penciled date on the inside through the treble F-hole and maybe on the neck block! Some of these have great tone! I like it!

    These models with the little pearl diamond the Gibson logo in thin style script are all dated to 1944 and are the A50 model. Most do have a FON somewhere stamped on the inside of the back as viewed through the lower F hole. Hard to say on the finish on this one but does not look original or may have had the shine taken off of it. Needs a clam style tailpiece cover. Tuners are original. And pickguard not on it.
