My wife bought the guitar for me as an 20th Anniversary present. She did not understand that it was not a players guitar. I naturally took it out of the case to admire, placed it back and there it has remained ever since. I still have the original shipping box from Gibson, and the guitar is in the condition it came from Murphy’s Lab. Ultra light aging! All untouched original paperwork, including Gibson’s Gold Warranty. Serial #001621. The guitar is “Brand New” but cannot be listed as such because I am not the dealer of fabricator.
