Anyone know how this Reverb seller ended up with such a steady stream of used Gibson electrics? Nice selection and the feedback suggests that, besides having a solid rep, there's been no shortage of good Gibson content previously. Wondering if anyone knows the back story/how all of this came about, and in New Brunswick of all places. Just curious...

No clue . He’s been there for a while. It could be like a fella I know he came to pei with well over 50 guitars from 30s Gibson’s, 60s-70s fenders , 50s framis , and a crap load of 70s-80s mij guitars . Including an original 83 Ibanez lr10

I tried to buy a Nocaster from him a few months ago. Let's just say that what seemed to be clear communication went sideways on his part and the deal fell through.

The bulk of the work on that guitar was done by Tidewater Custom Shop -- they're a user on TGP out of the US somewhere.

Interesting details on the '74 LPC. To look at it, I would have no clue that any repairs had been done to it. The work looks truly exceptional.

Mike Spicer's shop is The Peghead - located in Hamilton Ontario . He did the work a few months back . The neck finish was colour matched to the body but it was not made to look old . It had zero neck finish wear .

Sadly it looks like none of that is mentioned on the reverb ad

I actually owned the white one for a bit, and also the cherry (clown) burst ‘80 Custom he has up. The headstock re-broke on the white one when I shipped It to @toby2. We worked out a deal to have it repaired. They’ve both been around this forum a couple times!
