Case plate with owner's name

Picked up a '93 Dove yesterday. On the case there is a small brass plate with the original owner's name stamped on it. I know I drank a lot in the early 90s but I've never seen a case badge like this. It's a Gibson plate, not just something tacked on there. Did they only do that for a short while or....?

... Also- I'd seen that alligator-style case on some very limited runs circa '93.

 

Yeah that kinda spooked me at first. I figured '93 would have the standard California Girl case. Understand I bought it sight unseen.

 

I'm a gambler sometimes.

I love the '93 cases with the green lining! I have one, but it sustained a bit of missing fur on the innards. Wonder where one would get some replacement green fur to match?

It needs played. The strings were ancient. I put new D'Addario mediums on it and it woke it up some but it has the feel of a guitar that has been sitting idle for a while. It's my understanding the original owner passed away.

I SURE hope he didn't die trying to get it to 'open up' [confused]

It DO have pretty top wood!

Oh Yeah, ks, good to see ya on the flip again....MY Man
