Hello,

I have recently inherited this Gibson Lap Steel from my grandparents, and I am currently trying to figure out exactly what it is and how old it may be.

There is no serial number ANYWHERE on the guitar, and I have googled to no avail..

any opinions???

Thanks Xanadu..

I have checked the pot codes, and low and behold, they were dated 1961, so they were obviously replaced, as this lap steel was produced between 1947 and 1959.

Makes me wonder about the knobs, because I have seen other pictures of these with black knobs, and some with the white radio tuner-type knobs, so I'm thinking it depends when it was made as to what knobs were manufactured.
