    The bright colour begs for attention. Probably invites more about what the name is than just leaving it.

    Black would be more effective and less “look what I’m doing.”

    :D That's next level

    I've been wondering about that part - can a manufacturer demand reimbursement for their product being used in a video, movie or the like? Can Ford get money for Disney using a Ford car in a movie?
    I would think that once the product is sold, the owner would be free to use it to their hearts content, including using it in a video, on TV, etc?

    I rolled my eyes so hard I can see my own brain. (I woke up a little cranky this morning.)

    But maybe you really will convince Gibson to change course. I shouldn’t underestimate the power of masking tape.

    Should've written "DEAN" on the tape too

    The only thing the crowd cares less about than your tone, is who made your guitar

    That pearl triangle/rectangle thing might be trademark too. Maybe you should just put a paper bag over the headstock. But then the true meaning the tape conveys would be lost. No Gibson or facsimile on the bandstand for me so no tape, no bag.

    I noticed you used painters tape so no damage was done to the headstock, ensuring the value of your gibson was unharmed.

    If you really hate gibson that much sell the guitar... you’d have a buyer in no time.

    "Masking Tape" sounds good as a guitar brand.

    The only statement Gibson will understand is when people stop buying their guitars.

    Better yet, sell your Gibsons and stop buying them. Send a message to Gibson.

    I would be embarrassed to show up to any gig with a guitar taped over like this, no matter who made it. At that point you're a paid professional and are expected to act like one. I would just play a different guitar if this is that big of a deal to you.
