Leonard Rubinowitz receives BPI 40 Award!

Edie and I had the pleasure of attending the BPI "40 Who've Made a Difference" Awards where her father, Leonard S. Rubinowitz, was being honored for his notable service in the public interest. The Awards coincide with the 40th anniversary of Business and Professional People for the Public Interest (BPI) , a Chicago-based public interest law and policy center and are intended to "honor 40 of the Chicago region's public interest heroes by shining a light on these exceptional individuals whose efforts have made a significant difference".

Gibson Epiphone Nouveau Spotlight

1988 Gibson Epiphone Nouveau Spotlight CMT (Curly Maple Top)

This is a guitar I've owned for over 20 years. I purchased it in Grand Rapids, Michigan sometime in 1988. There's very little information available for this particular model online and virtually no markings or serial info on the guitar itself. So I decided to post whatever info I've been able to piece together in case you own a similar guitar and are looking for some background.
