Full line 1960's Gibson Guitar and Amp Catalog
Galaxy of Stars in same catalog
Gibson Folk Instrument 8 page Catalog
Some of them, I've discovered are rare and collectible. I shudder to think that this box could have easily been tossed into a dumpster at some point. The catalog below is really gorgeous.
1960 full line Gibson Guitar and Amps
There are about 40 pages of products listed this way...an excellent reference
another nice illustration among the photos
I could just go on and on...
And lastly A Story of a Guitar. This was printed for Kay Instrument Company in 1964-65 as best I can tell. It is like new and documented in beautiful sepia tone photos and illustrations. This is a gem of a book...and I have two!
You can find these four already listed in my etsy shop and I will continue to add until I've got them all in there.
Today, I am adding a really unique RCA Victor TV catalog. The pages are individually removable from the binder so I'm thinking this may have been a salesman's catalog. It's about an inch thick and has great photography...a pretty model in every picture. Be sure to check it out and if you know a collector of any to these items please let them in on the sale.
Anyone know a tip for getting the "old smell" out of paper? I'm sure there must be something.
