We have lots of stuff. Give me a bit more direction.
One thing we have is individual hi res portraits of all of our instruments -- front and back -- in front of a green screen. All of our instruments are old. These are forensic shots of great interest for grain detail, etc. but not too artistically interesting. However because of the screen, we can photoshop them into artistic places.
Here is an examble -- 1936 Jumbo35 Trojan.

We also do historical shots. EG All our Js from 1935 to 1965.

30s small Gibsons

All 30s Gibsons

War Time

Also composed stuff -- eg 1943

Is any of this of interest?

If Gibson had your guitars it'd be a museum; they must envy you!
On another topic, Tom - perhaps it's naive of me to ask but I see no 12-strings.Is there a reason you don't have any or do you just not feature any in your gorgeous set-ups?Simply curious. Thanks for sharing images of your guitars so that the rest of us get to see real history, by the way.

Lars' banner J-45 is one of the most stunningly clean examples I've ever seen. I think that one came from Willi Henkes (Antique Acoustics).

I bought it online from a Guitar Center in Florida. Willi Henkes in Germany made some repairs and set it up for me. It's my pride and joy. A wonderful guitar!

Infact, it has just the perfect amount of wear. It looks like a vintage guitar and I'm not afraid to use it.

We don't use them much, but we have a couple. No Gibsons though -- one Aria I bought for my new bride in 1969 and a 1968 Martin D -12-20

Never criticize a musician until you have walked a mile in his shoes. Then you will be a mile away and you will have his shoes.
