Has anyone here ever owned or played a Gibson S-1? There is an old fellow out here who has one. He called me last night and was wondering if I might be interested in it ( I had told him about a year ago if he was ever thinking of quitting to let me know..he's 86). I'm curious to hear what people think of them. An interesting animals, Les Paul body, Bolt on flying v neck and three single coils.
Kinda cool.

I just recently played one. I thought it had a very cool strat like sound to it. Nice neck and very light. The pickups were designed by Bill Lawrence. I guess these things are starting to slowly go up in value. Hey, if it is priced well...give it a shot. Good luck!

Well he told me he thought he was going to quick playing electric at the end of the summer (he is still in an old time band and they have a coming of gigs left to finish up), and then we would sit over a beer and talk about his guitar. So time will tell but I don't think he is wanting much for it.
