    Default VNUD: 1920s Gibson Style 1

    Just bought this gem on eBay! A beautiful late '20s Gibson Style 1 relabeled and sold by Black, Derges & Marshall, a music store in Peoria, Illinois. The Gibson decal on the headstock was covered by a plate with the store's name (as many retailers did at the time with Gibsons, Regals, and Harmonys).

    I haven't played it yet, as it's in the 30s outside today and I want to make sure it has acclimated to room temperature before strumming away. But the frets are in great shape and it's light as a feather.

    (I've also reserved one of the rescued Martins from Dave [PetalumaRescuke], which I hope will be ready for my enjoyment soon!)

    Sound sample from the Gibson eventually!
