    Aged True Historic - Factory Buckle Rash or Not

    Thanks again for all the replies and feedback. I worked with the dealer today and we quickly agreed on a price adjustment that we can both live with. I am happy to add this one to my collection especially since I will be much more likely to take this one out and play. The dealer has been...

    Aged True Historic - Factory Buckle Rash or Not

    I agree. I have called Gibson and they have been helpful - they have confirmed the serial number matches everything you would expect and that no one has registered the guitar in the past. As expected they cannot say if it is repurposed and I treat the idea of it being repurposed as one of a...

    Aged True Historic - Factory Buckle Rash or Not

    Aged True Historic - Factory Buckle Rash or Not

    I purchased sight unseen an Aged True Historic from an authorized dealer that told me I am/would be the first owner of the guitar. Upon delivery, I immediately noticed that there was significant buckle rash that did not look consistent with the rest of the aging of the guitar. I would like to...
