I have the nv-185 version of the nouveau, when i contacted the gibson factory there were very helpfull and confirmed that the nouveau was only in production under gibson for 1 year in the 80s, I then contacted the guitar shops reccommended to me by gibson for a valuation, (I bought the nv-185 off ebay for 350 dollars which is about 225 uk pounds (I am from england)). they inform me that they recall the instruments and that they were of a very high standard and the value would be around 750 -900 us dollars, which I was very pleased at indeed. I hear that the guitars are rare in the u.s so i prosume that they are even more so in the uk, I have not seen another one since, If I was to compare in to a taylor,high end guild, etc, no its not as good but compared to difference in price the guitar is unbelivable, I think if the guitar stayed the same but the nouveau logo at the top was actualy the real gibson logo, and you had just pick it up in a shop you would'nt question the quality. I would'nt sell the guitar because I feel I payed a very good price for it, but if i had payed more i would look at trading it in for the real gibson logo.(stupid I know)
