Topic: For serious Gibson fans in the Houston area
There is a guitar shop in north Houston which deals primarily in Gibson, Martin and Taylor. I had been looking into the the Gibson SJ-200 for a few months. Long story short, I passed and bought a Taylor. Nonetheless, a friend sent me this video of one of their latest acquisitions.
The last time I was in the store (a month or so ago) they still had it in the display case. I didn't ask to hold it or play it, but I did ask the guy how much it was selling for.
He told me he would "let it go today" for (a mere) $18,000.
So, if you're (1) in the Houston area (2) a big fan of Gibson, and (3) looking for a reason to take out a third mortgage, this is for you.
