Vintage 1950's Besson Aristone arch-top jazz guitar acoustic electric. I bought it in 2010 after wanting to be David Rawlings and not having the budget for a 1934 Epiphone Olympic... There are some chips on the back, but it is around 70 years old! It is strung with chrome/coated, so you don't get any finger squeaks and to help with that dull jazz arch-top sound.I sent all the info and photos to London Vintage Guitars on Denmark Street asking for a valuation. I'm not interested in swaps as I need the space back. Collection only from Banbury, Oxfordshire.
Update, I have been contacted by someone who has seen this for sale and he provided me with more information about the guitar & some copies of the 1953 price list, it seems that it is from the 1950's please see photos 8 & 9 -- Model 125 appears in the 1953 price list. This item is in the category "Musical Instruments & DJ Equipment\Guitars & Basses\Acoustic Guitars". The seller is "on-services" and is located in this country: GB. This item can be shipped to United Kingdom.
