Another Man's Gold
I normally do not write about used gear that comes into the store but on this one occasion I just could not resist.
A few days ago we got in a Gibson Advanced Jumbo acoustic guitar in a killer Tobacco Burst. One of our good customers had traded this guitar in for a Martin acoustic. When I asked him “Why do you want to trade this guitar in” he simply said I love the Martin and don’t really play the Gibson that much.
Don’t play is an understatement, when I opened the case I found a pristine Gibson acoustic that I had to scratch my head as I thought it was brand new. I gave the guitar a full strum with my fingers while holding a G chord. OMG this guitar was LOUD!!! I continued to play and kept asking him are you sure you want to trade this in over and over?
I just could not believe how this thing sounded and you could tell she was not broken in yet. As I write this Blog I am staring at the guitar and trying to figure out how I’m going to bring her home and introduce her to the rest of the family.
Just goes to show you how someone else’s garbage is another man's GOLD. Come in and check this beauty out, as she will not last long if I have anything to do with it.
