GUEST: The guitar belonged to my stepfather who was the guitarist for The Mills Brothers for many years.
APPRAISER: Well it’s a 1956 Gibson L-5C and the fact that Norman Brown played it, the fact that it’s on the album covers with the The Mills Brothers I would expect it would sell for sixteen thousand perhaps eighteen thousand at auction.
GUEST: Wow, wow, wow thank you. That’s a shock. I didn’t really expect it to be quite worth that much.
