Gibson has a history of hyperbole in it's marketing that pre-dates all of our lives. guaranteed. They have innovated and tried new things at all periods of thier career, going back to the 1890's. some things worked, many did not. stuff like the eye guitar or the reverse flying V are just part of a long established pattern of innovation/pandering.

Probably very difficult to reach a consensus of opinion in those days without the incredible communications tools available today, not to mention the fact that there were far fewer of us in those days, the combination of these & other pertinent era related facts making it much less likely for guitarists to have gained or passed on substantiated useful knowledge about new technology effects on traditional instruments.

Yeah, but back then everyone bitched about it via their telegraph machines...

xzackly what I was thinking! :D

Small localized groups of cork sniffers bitching them out - :mob - or were they just happy to have a quality guitfiddle or mando available and lucky to be able to afford one? :huh
