    Re: Mandobass Gibson 'J' 1922 - Ebay UK

    I actually got a Hiscox case a while back and it unfortunately did not fit the early ones either. They are just too wide and these cases like to keep things nice and tight. I have a Hiscox Artist...

    I recently sold a snakehead 1923 A-4 and got $4000. Listed it a few times in a few different places. I feel that’s pretty much where top of market is for one.
