http://www.virb.com/djmacintyre/videos/35666 From the way they started to make a guitar,it looked like they just grabbed three pieces of mahagonny and slapped it together with glue! No matching at all. Any old piece would do. And people wonder why some Gibson's sound great and others sound like dogs? That told me a LOT right there. If you are paying over three thousand dollars for a guitar, you would think they could pick out the wood better than that! No comparison to PRS at all! PRS has them beat by a mile. Which is why my next guitar is going to be a modern eagle and not a Gibson Tree of life les paul....which could be had for about the same amount. Paul was absolutely right when he said "everything affects everything" from they way the wood is selected, to the electronics put in place, to the final assembly. That was a real eye opener on Gibson for me. Don't get me wrong, Gibson produces some of the best guitars in the world....but this video makes me wonder if some of those guitars are just luck?
