Hi Everyone,

I was recently given a bunch of boxes of mixed Gibson Parts parts to sell online for our store, bought off a pallet from the Kalamazoo Factory in the 80's when they were moving stuff to Nashville and I have no idea what the market is for some of this stuff. So for starters, can anyone give me an idea if people are even looking for truss rod covers from the 70's-80's?

I've sold a couple of these but don't really have an idea how rare some are or if some of these have any value at all. I also got a bunch of NOS circa 70's-80's both PAF and non PAF pickups, bridges, pots both single and part of harnesses, switches, screws, and other stuff I am still diving into. If anyone has any info at all on particular parts from 70's- early 80's, certain years to watch out for, or anything really about parts from this era please help me out. Or at least help point me to a source of this type of info, I am wasting a lot of time researching a part that winds up being from some guitar model that was only made for a few years and barely sold (and still no one seems to want). Gibson got kinda funky in this era. I know this is a very broad inquiry but any help would be appreciated. I am at a loss for some of this.

I bought a LP Trad Pro II body and neck stripped from Reverb and it did not come with one. I wanted one that said Traditional. So I got on ebay and bought one. Paid maybe $10 or so. So, yes, but I certainly don't think they will move quick or you may not make a great deal of money from them, but I am sure you can sell one now and again.
