Gibson isn't updating their current digital catalogue on their website in 2013, yet people are surprised they were a little behind on their printed catalogue half a century ago?
Nah - when I was in HS, a friend of mine went through about 10 Jrs, both double- & single-cut; always buying & selling them, never as much as $75...........that seems about right to me (guess you can figure out when I was in HS now, eh?)$132, yep that seems about right
not quite.Well if it is indeed a '57 catalog, and an LP was $375, it's just over $3000.00 adjusted for inflation, so they've always been expensive.
Old question I know but..as I was selling at a Gibson (Thomas Organ CMI) store about 1965-1971 there was something called "Fair Trade"The prices listed in the catalog, were those the prices that music stores were selling at? Or was it the practice back then, as it is now, to sell below the MSRP? Just curious. Enjoyed this thread!
that is what i though as well but 57 was paf goldtops and 56 was p90 with abr1, if i remember right, 55 as well. , but it's also got paf's in various instruments, so maybe it's a early 58? where they had not completely developed all instruments away from stop tail bridges.Judging by the Les Pauls, it looks like an early 1957 catalog.
