Black Broadway

Recommended Posts

So I snagged this end of last week. Thoughts? I cant' wait to get it! Wish I hadn't just sold my old gold Bigsby B6 though! D'oh! (_8^(I)

 

(See the 'bay, item (self-removed) in case linky no worky, yeah, linky no worky)

Where are my manners? So sorry about that, chaps. Here are some quick pics I just snapped for you. Enjoy!

 

I talked to a friend of mine who works for Gibson. He looked it up in their database and told me they made 40 in this finish.

Oh Yeah - That's awesome!

That must have a huge fat sound but sweet.

I like the headstock and fretboard inlays with the black finish body.

They really pop.

Great score - hold on to that one. [thumbup]

If you get rid of it, you will never get it back. That is a very rare guitar. "Other gear" may not be such a rarity and can be procured soon enough...don't be in such a hurry, take a deep breath, relax and say to yourself "I will not sell my "Black Beauty" ", over and over...like a Mantra....

That is a nice guitar if you do not want it i will give you $450 for it

Wow, that was worth waiting for. I do like black guitars, and I only own one. I'd be inclined to agree with crust, but at the end of the day it depends how zen- non-attachment you can be about these things. If you have any doubt, keep it.

Thanks everybody. I think I'll try to sell some other stuff off instead. I'm in an acquisition mode for Genesis stuff, since I play Rutherford in a tribute band. I recently sold off a large chunk of the collection (including my beloved turquoises, WildKat, LP Studio, and Riviera - kept the Casino) to fund the purchase of a very rare Shergold doubleneck - a replica of Mike's from the late 70's, recreated in every detail, including machining whatever parts could not be found NOS. I also just got a Roland G-202/GR-300 and GR-500/GS-500 for the 78-81 synth-y type stuff. I have a few oddballs I can unload before the Broadway goes.
