Default OMG w00p :D - 10-29-2007, 05:20 AM

Well...I just got back from holiday in Cyprus with my friend's family which was ace (albeit managing to get a fishing hook in my eye <_< ) and there's a old & battered case on one of the sofas- i think i've seen it before (we have a few old cases) so I kinda...bypass it. Here's a pic:


So yeah...my dad tells me to open the case and erm...well...i shouted oh my god :P












I don't know if you can read the back of the headstock, partially due to my shoddy camera skills and mainly because I'm still using a webcam, but it says:
'67
[[serial number I cant quite make out]]
Made In U.S.A [[New York to be exact]].

OMG! :P and all this, including a certificate thingy for 850 [[or $1700 for you lot who use toy monies :P]]
On the way out he was apparently getting offers of around 2000 =D

Can I get a w00p w00p?

w00p w00P! Nice score. That is a work of art and your dad is the coolest! He knows quality guitars.

Hang on to that... that could be your retirement fund.

Congrats :hookem:

Thats a nice old Gibson. So what year are you saying - early seventies? Gibson serial numbers at that time were a right mess, and without pot codes to back them up, it gets hard to be precise. How does it sound?

File was probably lost while moving to a faster server.
