Gibson Guitar Factory photos by Michigan in Pictures

Michigan in Pictures has a great photo of and story about the Gibson Mandolin-Guitar Manufacturing Company in Kalamazoo, Michigan in the early part of the 20th Century including links to the Kalamazoo Public Library Collection on Community Information. They write:

"Gibson preferred using old furniture wood to make his instruments, believing it to be more durable and of higher quality. This emphasis on quality and craftsmanship limited Gibson's output to only six or seven instruments a year. This changed in 1902, when Gibson was approached by five men who offered to provide money to establish a manufacturing facility for his instruments."

View the photo and read Gibson Guitar in Kalamazoo, Michigan for more about this company's history.
