    Default Gibson necks for sale

    I see these necks show up for sale from time to time. Am I to assume they are leftovers from Gibson's Kalamazoo factory? Mortis & tenon joints, etc. Here they are offered from a seller in Michigan.

    Yep, that stuff shows up from time to time. When they had a big sale when they bailed out on Kalamazoo there was a LOT of stuff that ended up in people’s garages. My brother got a bunch of mahogany veneer, I used some to cover an old Army radio box, it looks great! He also ended up with a big box of mahogany chronometer boxes in various stages of construction,I have no idea what he was thinking with there but, the veneer has come in handy a couple of times.
