Here are some photos of my 1976ish Gibson MK-35 that I purchased new in 1977. A strange and interesting guitar. The MK-35 has a spruce top with mahogony back and sides, is a large and deep bodied beast. Some of them were good and some of them not so good according to the literature available. The one that I own has been VERY good and after a refret and set up it is now better than new. There are very interesting overtones and harmonics that come out of this thing. The biggest downfall that I have ever found with the thing is that it was built so bombproof that you have to really drive it to really maximize it's tonal possibilities, the upside to that is that you can NOT overplay the's a growling, ringing, booming, singing Gibson!
