  1. Are we to factor in costs associated with making it fully playable in addition to initial purchase costs?

  2. One of my kids comes in this morning and says that he found a guitar when they were cleaning out the garage. His grandpa forgot that he even had it. So, I'm thinking it's some old cheapy, but then the kid says it's a Gibson. He brought it in after school, and it's completely covered with grime. Tuning keys are shot, and pickguard is disintegrated. One big crack in the back, and a brace that runs across the bottom directly under the bridge is loose and rattling around. Under the grime, the Gibson logo is quite clear. I look inside the top f hole and see L-48 imprinted. Through the other f hole

  3. So, about $20,000 in guitars and $500 in amps? I think you need more amps.

  5. Yeah man! More of this type of thing to come I feel. Lots of Good Rawking in this guitar and everyone who gets to play it do not forget to put a lil something in it to mark where it has been. Get a photo be it in the livingroom, practice room, or at a show for the thread. Video is ALWAYS a plus but not required. The journey will continue after Bubs takes it for few spins and enjoys the spirit within. Crank it up but don't scare the Children to much.

  6. As a former owner of this axe, it really is a nice guitar in every way. A piece of history for sure!!

  7. I've fought off my "good archtop" longings for a long time now. Newports and Monacos have held that at bay, but it's always there, latent perhaps. I remind myself that I don't sound very good on even the stuff I have, and a five-digit-archtop won't be changing that.
