Gibson BR-9 Model Lap Steel Electric Guitar (1955), made in Kalamazoo, Michigan, tan crinkle lacquer finish, hardwood body, original brown alligator grain chipboard case.
Overall length is 32 in. (81.3 cm.), 8 1/8 in. (20.6 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 1 5/8 in. (4.1 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 22 in. (559 mm.). Width of nut is 2 1/4 in. (57 mm.).

A nice original example of Gibson's most basic postwar lap steel. This guitar shows some light wear, mostly dings and chips to the edges. It remains all original except the buttons on the Kluson Deluxe tuners are reproductions. Sounds as it should -- a typically fat singing Gibson steel with that P-90 midrange growl. Still housed in its original alligator grain chipboard case, which is more intact than many. Excellent - Condition.
