Got the Spirit?


Recommended Posts

I know this is not an acoustic, but thought it of interest to some of the 'old timers'



I ran across this one: Gibson / Epiphone "Spirit"

Perplexing is it was built in the 1980s in the "Kalamzoo plant".


Did Gibson still own this plant in the '80s?


Also, quite interesting, is the statement that some Spirits, built as Epiphones

were re-branded as Gibsons and the "Epiphone" logo can still be seen if you look

closely as it is under neath the "Gibson" Logo.


This IS Wikipedia, so cannot be take as cannon.


Anybody else know the history of this?

An after talking to one of my cousin who work there till 1985

He retired then so not sure if this is right the plant closed in the late 80.
