In 2008, Gibson Guitars had a sim in Second Life. Managed by musician Von Johin and others, the sim offered several venues with live music. Also offered was an astounding collection of authentic factory-authorized replicas of at least two dozen of the company’s classic guitars (and one F-style mandolin). The models were meticulously created by master virtual luthier Myriam Beck and were offered to the public for free.
This retrospective exhibit displays the entire genuine Gibson guitar collection (as far as is known) from the 2008 sim.
