    You also need to be able to show it's a Derrig. Not to me but to all the skeptics that will be hammering you with questions.

    I know of someone who could authenticate it, but the guitar would have to be in LA to have that done.

    It may fool the snobs, but it won't fool the experts. :)

    Old thread but I was intrigued as one of these found its way to my shop. Its got Derrig right on the headstock and not Gibson. No its not mine or for sale.

    I just received my Derrig today and It's an amazing guitar. It needed some TLC though.

    This thread is 6 years old, so my guess is he hasn't sold it, or if he did, it was a long time ago. ;)

    How much longer do we have to wait?

    Is it a natural relic yet?
