Gibson Corvus 1

Recommended Posts

Here is the first Guitar I bought (with my first pay cheque) December 1983 Gibson Corvus 1. They only made them for a couple of years so now quite rare,  although I did see one on ebay the other week.

Interesting you saw one on ebay, there was a corvus II that sold on a guitar auction a few weeks ago, maybe someone bought that and passed it on. I did briefly think of getting it but it was white and not in as good condition as yours.

Interesting looking guitar.  Maybe Gibson was trying to jump on the small body guitar trend ala Steinberger?  

I think it was a bit of a Gibson revival model along with the Invader and Challenger.  I got it because I couldn't afford an Explorer,  I think it was  quite a bit cheaper.  it has a 24 ¾” scale length & about 3kg.

It's a cool looking guitar, I hadn't seen one before and didn't know the model existed.
