 Hello Everyone!!

This is a 1930's (1936-38?) Recording King M-5 Acoustic F-hole Guitar, serial # DW-962.   Recording King's were Montgomery Ward's line of guitars made in the USA by GIBSON, with the M-5 being the top of the line model, similar to Gibson's L-7.  Some scratches, checked finish, etc. as you would expect from a 70+ year-old guitar, but is structurally sound and plays great!!  This is a family heirloom, my Great-Great Uncle was the original purchaser, and I recieved it as a gift 15 years ago.  I NEVER intended to sell it, but I must to make my Mortgage payment, as I lost my job and don't want to live in my car!!!  PLEASE ask any questions before bidding!!  I don't want to do any returns since I need this money immediately to make the house payment...I also reserve the right to end the auction early...

Here are some specs....any additional info that others have would be appreciated!!!

Double Bound body, Tobacco Sunburst finish, Arched Spruce top, Flame Maple sides and Arched back, 5 piece Maple and Rosewood back, Bound Rosewood fretboard, Pearl "Block with Bullseye" inlays, Trapeze tailpiece, Adjustable Rosewood bridge, Sculpted Headstock with Rosewoodoverlay and Pearl inlays, Open gear Grover tuners with metal buttons, Bound Fire-stripe pickguard, 24 3/4 Gibson scale.  Comes with Original Hardshell Case with Arched top & Wine Red lining.

Other M-5's in similar condition are out there for $1500.00 to $2500.00, I really need to move this.  I know shipping may sound expensive at $130.00, but it's obviously going to be a big box, I'm packing it to survive WW3, and insuring it for $2500.00

Once again please ask any questions before bidding!!  I don't want to ship it overseas!!  

Thanks Everyone!!!
