We would like your assistance in recovering our missing shipping ledger book from 1959-1960, which documents an important period in our 126-year-old history and the pinnacle of the Gibson Golden Era.

The 1959-1960 Gibson shipping ledger has been missing from Gibson’s archives for at least thirty years. It may not have made the move with the company from Kalamazoo, MI to Nashville, TN. If you believe you have it, please follow the steps below.

Upon validation of ledger authenticity, the party who safely returns the missing 1959-1960 shipping ledger book will receive a $59,000 CASH REWARD.

The submitting party must follow the following 3-step process:

  1. Send an email validation request to Ledger@gibson.com. Your email must include the following:
    1. Written description.
    2. Photograph(s) and/or videos of the items.
    3. Contact email and phone number.
  2. The validation email request will be reviewed within 15 business days by the Gibson Historical Committee (GHC), composed of Cesar Gueikian (Chief Merchant Officer), Mat Koehler (Head of Product Development), Mark Agnesi (Director of Brand Experience) and Jason Davidson (Director of Consumer Services).
  3. Based on the GHC’s analysis, the submitting party will be contacted with next steps and instructions.

We are also seeking to recover other pre-1970 Gibson documents, ledger books, blueprints and unique Gibson assets which are historically important and relevant.

Rewards for Pre-1970 Gibson documents will be considered on a case by case basis and may include cash, Gibson gift cards, instruments, and experiences (conditions apply). We reserve the right to validate information and to authenticate materials as genuine articles prior to issuing rewards.
