Brilliant....... thanks for posting. Might have been a crummy job but they produced some superb guitars with limited supplies of wood.
Maple J-45s etc. No truss rod due to lack of steel. Big Ol Baseball Necks :thumbsup: Well done to those women and pathetic of Gibson to
cover up that part of their history.
