Rare Gibson Sparrow Acoustic in LA area for $2500

This is my listing for a 2011 Gibson Sparrow in excellent condition.  These were a "short run" at the Gibson Bozeman Montana plant and they were the top of the line full size dreadnaught in the Gibson lineup at the time.   Very nice high end acoustic made with all solid Adirondack Spruce and Rosewood and a big tone.

You won't find these for sale anywhere.  There are non listed on eBay now or sold in last six months.

model name / number: Sparrow

Ever played a Gibson Dreadnaught acoustic with a solid Adirondack Spruce top and solid East Indian Rosewood back and sides and double parallel inlays? Few people have - because Gibson no longer makes one. Gibson only made a short run of these Sparrows at their Bozeman Montana plant back in 2011-12 and then they stopped production (probably so they could focus on more of the cheaper "Songbird" models at their new Canadian factory).

I searched the internet and could not find a single Gibson Sparrow for sale right now - I also called Norman's guitar shop and McCabe's and neither had ever even seen one of these live in person.

As you can see in the pics, the guitar is in excellent "as new" condition. It plays and sounds like a dream - big, full, bright, clear, (great for Bluegrass or Fold Rock) and comes with all the original unopened case candy. It's been stored with humidity control and a humidifier at all times.

Only $2500 for this extremely rare and amazing USA made Gibson Sparrow with case!
