    Hello, don’t know if this is the right section, but was wondering if anyone knew if you can tour the Gibson plant in Nashville. My wife and I are going in March with friends and I REALLY want to see it if I can. I tried google but only showed corporate building. Thanks in advance

    59 burst on ebay

    Forgive me if this has been posted already. My friend called me up and told me about a burst on ebay for 150k. It looked good until I enlarged the picture of the serial number. When I looked at it I could swear it had "made in America" up high above the serial. I have only seen a handful of...
