Up for sale is a circa 1918-1921 Style O artist in near mint condition.

This is BY FAR the cleanest , most together Gibson Style O for sale at the moment.
There are NO cracks or repairs , and no funky smells.Tailpiece replaced to a period correct version with 2 extra screw holes. This piece of art plays lovelyand sounds just as sweet.
Original case is also in wonderful condition.

It even has the ORIGINAL KEY !

This is the cleanest one Ive ever seen and have babied it for all the years Ive owned it.

It is a remarkable instrument and a stunning piece of early Gibson history.

$7500

I know a gentleman who has a beat up Style O in the back of his hall closet. No case. Just leaning against the back wall of the closet. He doesn't play. Got it cheap a long time ago. Won't sell it. I haven't seen it in a couple of decades. I see him every so often. I shudder to think what it looks like now. The closet was his junk closet. His son knows I would like to have it. Perhaps from the estate some day.

Your guitar is gorgeous.

It may be worth your time to contact Songbirds Guitar Museum in Chattanooga, TN. They have a stunning collection of guitars and could very well be interested in obtaining this one. Worth an email to the curator!
