Possible a special order???
Could be. There was a '60's Gent that got humpblocks. Looked great as does this one.
We had a couple of comments on this model a month or so ago. First one popped up at Gruhn Guitars and a short time later one was at the Philadelphia Guitar Show. Nice looking Gent in person but a bit overpriced in my opinion. I think it was $3500. No idea how many were made.
Nice and looks clean. A little optimistic on the price though. I'd say if it has no issues, 3K would be reasonable.
If you notice, both guitars, while having the lovely SC neck inlays, they're in MOP or perhaps ivoroid, not the exquisite abalone of the original SC's.
