I picked up a 1973 Gibson Gospel off of Craigslist locally and I'm wondering if anyone has much experience with one? It definitely needs new bridge pins. Other than that, the binding is Chipping off in some places, which I have read is pretty much what happened to all the ones with the tortoise shell binding. I'm considering throwing a couple of hundred into it to set it up, get new pins and get a pickup installed. It sounds pretty good all things considered. If anyone has a good suggestion on how to fix or even stop the binding chipping I'd be very appreciative.
