I took a few lessons from Roland a couple of years or so ago and from the way he described how he came to own the Gibson, I was under the impression it was comped, but I couldn't swear to it. He said something to the effect "they wanted to build me one for years so finally I let them". He said he sold the Randy Wood and remodeled his kitchen with the proceeds...
