The recent threads mentioning the Gospel got my interest so I started looking for one. EBay had one listed that caught my attention. It was listed starting at 900 with make an offer. The pictures were rather evasive but the description was very specific. Here it is - Hi up for sale is a 1994 Gibson 100th Anniversary Gospel acoustic guitar. The guitar is absolutely mint with just the barest signs that it had been handled. I purchased it from the original owner who said to me he maybe strummed it lightly a few times. It's a true time-capsule piece..just as it came from the factory. 100th year foil label inside sound hole Looked nice enough and with the description I had the EBay guarantee Toward the end of the bidding I offered him a little less than his starting point. Just before it was over he accepted it. When I tried to pay him, his email was not active with Paypal. We got that fixed. A couple days later the USPS drops it off at my door. No box, tape around the case. Case was not in great shape but the tape did no damage. After I opened it, I thought I got the wrong guitar Nicks, scratches, fret wear and a nice top crack along the fret board I immediately started the return process. He was polite and agreed. Then he asked if I would consider keeping it with a partial refund. I then did a more thorough inspection. Crack is secure, truss rod (dual action) worked, fret wear could easily be removed plus there are a few high frets, fret board was clean, neck angle was only slightly off and not in need of a reset, nut slots need recut. Did not play bad as is. I offered $375 and he agreed. What do you think?
