  4. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    11 pages, 267 posts (including this), most of which bring up some interesting points but, my favorite was from (I think) Bernie, “ The dozen or two folks here probably will not have much impact.” To...

    Re: How to repair this broken head stock ?

    The collector will not realize “collectible” return after the repair is done and indeed may not recover the cost of the repair when trying to sell this but, if he’s a bigger dust collector, it may...
  7. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    I may be mistaken but that might have been Rendell Wall not Ed Rendall. I’m sure someone here will set the record straight.

    “Director of Brand Experience”!??? I should be so lucky! What a nebulous title. So, if there is a revolution, his tail gets slammed in the door. Brilliant corporate direction.

    Re: Gibson Shipping Ledger - November 29, 1951

    Exactly, this is a shipping ledger not a receiving log.

    Re: Am I asking too much?

    Not in my opinion, low ballers are constantly trying to beat up sellers!
    “What’s your best price?”
    MY best price is three times what I have it marked so, I feel that my marked price is fair. Stick...

    Re: Storage: Case vs Hanging on the Wall

    I’d hang one if I had any wall space! I’ve collected too many paintings and other art already!
    There, now, you have learned to remember it’s all up to you, I think if you can, you can. If it...

    Re: Gibson's Historical Mailing Address

    My guess is as they bought more properties, other numbers were used until the “office” settled on the 225 number. The Harrison court address is understandable, it was a cross street and barely there...
