When Michael died, we went to his house to collect documents for the filing of his final tax return. Someone had already been there and took most of the instruments. Under the circumstances the guitars were not given much attention. In retrospect these instruments had historical value and most likely would neve come our way. I was delighted that Gibson had created the signature model but like the Holy Grail, it could never be duplicated.
Patrick wrote me that he had heard that Vintage Guitar June issue will have some new information
on the missing Les Paul. This is the first I have heard of this. It would be a relief to learn what actually occurred.
