In this gallery, Ruffatto, shrouded in a purple glow much like Prince in Paradise, shows off Gibson’s one-of-a-kind Monarch Crown Jewel Edition. The Monarch is the super jumbo model Gibson made in the mid-1990s, but this one has a hand-carved headstock design inlaid with a 14k gold crown medallion with Montana Yogo sapphires. Pretty!
You can’t afford it. We can’t either. But we can gawk … and dream!
