Gibson Guitar Identification

Posted by Pete on Thu, 02/20/03 - 16:58:02.

Am looking at an older Gibson acoustic f-hole archtop
guitar. It has the name 'Henry L Mason' on the head.
Also has 'Special Gibson Inc.' The only No. found was
2870 looking into the f-hole. The owner is an elderly
gentleman who bought it in the '40's. I'm interested
in purchasing it but want more information. Can any
one help? Thanks....Pete.... from British Columbia,
Canada.

Re: Henry L. Mason

I was just given a guitar which belonged to my great-grandmother. My grandmother was born in 1903. And my great-grandmother must of been born about 1878. The guitar is small and has the characteristics of a Martin, but its only make is a stamp inside "Henry L. Mason Boston" It has a beautiful sound

Re: Henry L. Mason

I have a Henry L. Mason guitar. It's an acoustic archtop, build in 1938. Henry L. Mason was a guitar builder for Gibson. Some of the workers were allowed to build there own guitar as a sort of annual bonus. They could use materials and tools from the Gibson Factory. My guitar was bought during WW 2 in Europe (holland) and migrated with it's owner Frank Zegveld to Melborne, Australia. I used to play it when I was there in 1981 and some 10 years later I inherited it. Ps Frank's still alive and well but gave me the guitar anyway.....
