GIBSON INCORPORATED, KALAMAZOO, MICHIGAN, CIRCA 1952
I would have though it would have brought more. What a treasure.
Nice buy, COF. I hope it works out for you!
Lol, I wish. At least at that price someone will take care of it, even if they bought it purely for investment purposes. Hopefully it will be publicly viewable in a museum somewhere.
maybe there is a way to commission a new one assuming the materials even exist anymore.
A new #1 prototype? It’s part of history that made it so historic. There’s plenty of vintage GLP’s around and the models have even improved, but this was the one that started them all.
