Original Gibson reproduction

Postby WillowRidgeCalls » September 27th, 2011, 11:02 pm

I had a chance to do a reproduction of an original Gibson for a customer in MS. It was a pleasure to be asked to do the call for him. They sent me pictures of the original to copy, the problem was his boss was having the call made for him without him knowing it, so it was quite the trick just to get the pictures. :) There was about 13 straight hours of my old style burninng to get everything on this call. The call is made of canary over snakebelly cherry, it has a high start that rolls over into a deep throated rasp, it has a sweet kee kee and a great gobble in this call. I hope he likes it.
Thanks for looking. Scott

This is the original. Note the blue chalk on the call, he was using the call until he found out what the value was. Now it's under lock and key.

As usual Scott a fantastic job. Your art work adds that heirloom quality to an already great piece of work. Old Henry Gibson would be impressed with that one.
