This collection features many instruments that Dickens used through the early part of his career and includes a guitar presented to him by George Jones, which is autographed by Jones.
There is also a custom guitar built by luthier Glen Morgan out of wood that was once a pine fence which stood in the back of Dickens’ property. Additionally there is a Rich & Taylor Jumbo model that includes a red sparkle hard shell case with “Jimmy Dickens” hand painted on top of the case.
Mr. George Gruhn states that he feels honored to help find new homes for these wonderful instruments. The asking prices are very reasonable.
