Re: GIBSON NOUVEAU
: : Yeah, Ive got an NV 6 also it sounds great.
: I've got the NVJ version (jazz archtop w/pickup). The headstock says "Epipohone" instead of nouveau but all else is the same. I emailed Gibson and they said the same thing.. MIJ, assembled in USA. Mine was made in 87 only- The first 8 months as "Nouveau by Gibson" and the last 4 months under "Epiphone" (mine). Anyway, I havn't seen any info other than in gruhn's (alas, no prices). I have not seen or heard of ONE other jazz Nouveau. If you have seen one or have one, please email me!!! email@example.com
I have an Epiphone NVJ-SB as you describe, I found it in a seconed hand shop in Sydney for A$1200. I think it is a jem and I don't realy care about its value, I just think Gibson is a wacky company that regardless happen to make great and occasionally interesting guitars
