Spring Cleaning: 1930s Gibson Squad Photo


I'm swapping around ephemera in the shop and so some of my collection is for sale (and framed, too).

This one is an original 1930s 5x7 in a newer wood frame. It's absolutely awesome from the point of a Gibson fan like myself: a late 20s/early 30s-equipped band entirely toting Gibson instruments! And, unlike earlier Gibson "orchestras," this one has a number of Gibson flattop Hawaiian guitars, old "Robert Johnson" style L-0/1s, and a host of nice old mandolin-family instruments along with a Mastertone 5-string banjo. Sheesh! And... how often do you see a mandobass this late in the game?
