"One of the oldest Gibson acoustics that I have and it’s probably in the best condition out of all of them. I don’t know, but if it did get played, it was played by someone with baby hands. Well, you know what, it did get played because the fretboard is worn out from fingernails, but the guitar looks almost brand-new. It’s amazing and sounds unbelievable. Obviously, somebody took good care of it and it got played, it got the dirt played right off of it, because the fretboard itself underneath those cowboy chord positions is totally scalloped and worn out."
