ok guess I didnt look enough and answered me own question ..

In the summer of 2006, Gibson moved its Custom Shop to a larger facility. At the end of their move, in conjunction with their annual Gibson “SummerJam”, they held an auction. They auctioned over 100 guitars that were in the old Custom Shop facility for one reason or another. Some were prototypes, some were loaners, some were returns probably.


Proceeds went to a charity. Lots of cases were on sale because The Custom Shop changed its logo from the “Custom, Art and Historic” logo to “Custom” earlier that year.


The Roadworn stamp got stamped on every guitar they auctioned. I don’t know specifically why, but some said it was in case someone tried to return one via a sales outlet, etc..

Interesting.
Normally, I'd be suspicious, given that Fender has a MiM Roadworn series.

But this is branded on the headstock... not just someone's description/claim.
Cool story on the CS relocation.
