Greatest guitar sale in history
So if you haven’t read about this yet, here’s the story:
Leo Krebs closes his North Hollywood music store and repair shop in the early 70s. He retains about 70 instruments in storage, including brand new Martins, Fenders and Gibsons. Now, around 40 years later, these instruments are all looking to find a good home.
Just to be clear, we’re talking about things like a NOS (New Old Stock) 1960s Gibson ES335-12 12-string, an NOS Gibson SG Standard, NOS Gibson Violin Bass, NOS 60s Fender Mustain and Precision basses, NOS 60s Fender Mustang, ’56 Strat, ’65 Mosrite Joe Maphis double-neck, ’68 NOS Fender Telecaster, NOS 60s Fender Paisley Telecaster, NOS 1968 Gibson ES-175, a 1950 Fender Broadcaster… oh look, there’s so much there that you should just go check it all out. Hopefully some of it is still available for a few lucky buyers. The link is worth clicking just for the ‘Wow, I can’t believe that’s just been sitting in storage for four decades’ novelty value, and definitely for the history.
