Replacement COA for Dickie Bettes Gold top

Recommended Posts

I have a Dickie Betts Goldtop number 20 that needs a COA.  I can drive it to Memphis or ship it to you for verification. Am willing to pay all cost and a fee.  Please advice.

The people you need to ask are at Gibson Customer Service.  But, I'm pretty sure that they don't replace lost/missing COAs under any circumstance.

Not going to happen.  A certificate of authenticity wouldn't be very authentic if it was a replacement.  If you have a Dickie Betts model LP, the serial number and features etc should be enough to prove it when necessary.

Yup, I was just talking to one of my local Gibson dealers yesterday......pretty much said it's impossible to get a replacement COA from Gibson, even with proof of purchase and authentication. I remember when Fender Custom Shop used to be pretty much the same way, but they've loosened up. Was also told PRS was even worse than Gibson, which I find hard to believe.

...or better than; it depends on one's viewpoint.

Unluckily for you Gibson will not issue a replacement but imagine if an unscrupulous person had altered a GT to resemble a Dickey Betts Signatire model, subsequently received a COA from Gibson and then passed it off for a substantially jacked-up sum of money to some poor soul as the real deal...
