    Don't know how great it sounds and don't know what it's worth, but it seems to me like it would hurt Gibson's feelings to have their thoughtful and generous 'gift' put up for sale.
    But, maybe it's true... Gibson has no feelings.

    Some people will say just about anything to sell an instrument.

    Better than a The Loar, anyway, I reckon.
