I have a alot of bullshit in me, I don't bull shit on my items I sell. I never had 1 come back. In 18 years. Yes I'm proud of that, and should be.. Yes Yes owning a real 57 Gold Top be very nice. That 85k price.. That not me.. To me this 1973 where Gibson went back to old school they just built a few that I will always remember. Now Gibson is owned buy people that created money,. not Guitars that we make memories on.
