    Description

    The Mamas and the Papas: Papa John Phillips' 1994 Gibson "The Everly" Model Acoustic Guitar. John used this instrument primarily for songwriting and playing at home. It does not show the signs of playing wear evident on his Dove. The Everly model is based on the early 1960s guitars designed for the Everly Brothers. It was updated in the 1990s with the vintage J-200 style "open moustache" bridge used on the Everly's own prototype instruments. Included with this auction lot is the Gibson hardshell case, a photo of John with the guitar, and a letter of authenticity from John's wife, Farnaz Phillips. John Phillips was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 as a member of The Mamas and the Papas.
