This 1930 Gibson TB-1 is a little rough but has the potential to make a good conversion. Its "excuses" are as follows:
Seven holes' worth of the flange is broken out due to a tragic shipping accident (the four broken pieces are included).
The tension hoop is a newer five-string type.
There is some separation of the resonator sidewalls and indications of water damage (finish only) to the resonator sidewalls and one spot on the rim on the first-string side.
The armrest is dented in from overtightening of the attachment bolt.
There is some possible old overspray on the back of the resonator.
There is separation of the peghead ears, especially on the first-string side.
The original "window" tailpiece is missing its cover and one string attachment hook is broken off.
