Re: GIBSON NOUVEAU Guitar
Apparently, these were briefly imported by Gibson in the late 80's and final assembly was preformed at Gibson USA. Some trouble ensued with Gibson wanting to market these as made in the US and the line was dropped. I just bought one last week. It's an NV6R-S serial number 0001. Anyone else have any info? : : WHY HAVE I NEVER SEEN ANY OTHER GIBSON LIKE MINE ANYWHERE? DOES ANYONE KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT MY GIBSON NOUVEAU? I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO KNOW WHERE I CAN FIND ANOTHER ONE LIKE IT.CAN YOU HELP?
: : I have one too! I bought it in 1988 in Berkeley, CA. The sales person said it was the only Ephiphone factory guitar that Gibson put it's name on . It sounds and plays great . He mentioned that the bridging is "scalloped" like that in a Martin.
