Gibson Offers $59,000 Reward for Missing Shipping Ledger

Victoria Wasylak • MMR GlobalSupplier Scene • July 14, 2020

Gibson has announced a $59,000 cash reward for anyone who can recover a 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,” according to a statement from the company.

Gibson sent out the letter announcing the reward today (July 14).

“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,” the letter states. “This offer is open to one and all and is ‘no questions asked,’ although we reserve the right to validate information and authenticate materials as genuine articles prior to issuing rewards. We are also offering rewards for the recovery of other pre-1970 Gibson documents, ledger books, blueprints, and unique Gibson assets which are historically important and relevant.”

Reports about the missing ledger can be filed here.
