1929 Gibson HG-20 flat top acoustic with 5 soundholes!
Here's an oddity that I've not seen before. It's a Gibson HG-20 from 1929, a 3/4 scale acoustic guitar with five soundholes. Apparently each of the four f-holes has its own chamber constructed within the guitar's body, giving the guitar its own unique voice. This guitar is currently being offered for sale on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $1,900.
