Welcome to the forum, and congrats on owning that guitar! We're still waiting on the photos btw...Sharky, could I be lucky enough to find my guitar on your ledger page? SER # 37324.
I’d have to agree with the thoughts already stated, there are several other businesses and individuals that I would rather take an instrument of this caliber to. Gibson won’t be able to recreate the correct nitro formula, and likely won’t have the same care and appreciation for the instrument.Thanks, I'll try to get some pics up, but this guitar was painted when I got in 1965. Lot of the paint has rubbed of to reveal the TV color. I'm in the process of trying to establish contact with Gibson to talk about restoring.
