    Anyone ever heard of Lyle acoustics? I have one built between '69 and '71. It was my fathers and I love it. My father and I have done some research and it looks like it may have been manufactured by a company called MIJ?? out of Japan as a showcase guitar to try to get Gibson to let them build what ended up being the Epiphone line. Kind of like, here is the best we can do, let us build your stuff. This guitar has one of the richest sounds I have heard, and even after 30 years feels great. I currently have it in the shop to have a new nut put on, but other than new strings this is the only maintenance ever. The rod has been frozen for 25 years, but the neck is still perfect.

    Don't worry, didn't make you sound like a dick.
