I found this 1936 Gibson EH-150 on ebay a while back and have been slowly restoring it.  I got it for next to nothing, most likely because it had no hardware and no pickup and the likelihood of tracking down these original parts is pretty slim and would be expensive.  It struck me as a worthwhile project to test out building a Charlie Christian style pickup and milling the  hardware from scratch.  I was lucky enough to find replica knobs from Fake 58.

My good friend Gene Warner was kind enough to record a little sample (you don’t want to hear me play it!)
