Subject: RE: Martin 58. Gibson 2. Holy Cow!
I saw a circa 1966 Gibson ES 175 that may have been bought new by my father. Same colour, same era, and it stayed in Toronto when he sold it. I realize that it was a very popular guitar with Jazz players and that there were probably several in Toronto at that time, but you never know. I know Susan would love to have that one today. Recently someone loaned her a circa 1949 ES-125 that she is afraid to take out of the house.

I also browsed through their sold section. Who is buying $12,000 guitars?

And Rick, for me it was the time that someone talked me out of going for Chinese and trying Indian instead. I haven't been the same since.
