This Gibson would make a great collector's piece- or something perfect to hang on the wall of a a bar! I'd love to know more of the history behind this '84 Gibson which has had its body cut into the shape of a map of the USA. The auctioneer says it looks like it's ever been played, which is hardly surprising since it looks like it would be hugely uncomfortable- the cone and volume knobs look like they're a bit of a stretch away! Estimated value is $2,000-3,000. Ultimately the best reason to buy it is "because 'Murica".

You're not wrong! I've got to hand it to the person that cut the body into shape though- that must have taken some skill!
