Restored 1917 Gibson Harp Guitar

This instrument was purchased by the Kalamazoo Valley Museum for their Gibson display.  When they obtained it, it arrived in several pieces.  Aaron had to make a complete new neck, rebind most of the body, and the peghead extension had to be pieced back together.  Some of the missing pieces were fabricated as close to original as possible, and the finish restored to the original colors.  The tail piece, bridge, and harp pegs are original. 

You can see this at the Kalamazoo Valley Museum in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
