Here's a really fine offering from the Gibson Historic Collection. Built in '05, Ren Furgeson and the builders in Bozeman hit a home run with these. The workmanship is superb, and the sound will really turn your head. We get a lot of vintage and recent slope shoulder dreadnoughts in our shop (they seem to find us more than any other style...no complaints!), and this piece holds her own among some classics. Seems this piece gets picked up a lot these days when folks sit down to play.
Solid spruce top (could be Adirondack by the wide grain, or it might be Sitka...I can't say for sure) that is finished in that gorgeous tobacco 'burst that only Gibson can do. No other copy of the 'burst' quite measures up to the original. Rosewood rectangular bridge with long 'through' bone saddle. White plastic bridge pins. Old time Gibson 'fire striped' pick guard that really looks cool, in my opinion. Beautifully book matched solid rosewood back/sides is very nice. White binding on top and back in super shape. Bound rosewood long scale (25.4') fretboard with beautiful inlay work. Frets show only minimal wear in the first position. 1 23/32' bone nut. Ebony headstock overlay with script 'Gibson' inlaid along with fingerboard pattern inlay. Open back chrome Gotoh tuners are in mint shape and work perfectly. Chrome strap button has been installed on the front of the neck heel. She comes in her original issue Gibson hardshell case that's in near mint shape.%3
