Then why give Fender 4 slots and Gretsch 2?Only 10 poll options allowed. We all know there are good and bad guitars from any maker...if Ibanez or any other brand makes lots of great guitars they should get a vote, even if they also make a few duds..
So you wanted to do a poll of iconic brands and couldn't think of PRS (NOT 'boutique') or Rickenbacker, so you decided to throw Ibanez and Godin in there to fill out the 10 slots?Bc Gibson, fender and gretsch are the big 3 of iconic electric guitar brands..and all gibsons are Mia not as much need to split..
Ya but how many did they actually sell..In 2012, PRS made 13,000 guitars. That's hardly boutique.
Nobody would. At least not if they are being objective.agreed...I recall a Forbes article about PRS a while back and they quoted a $43.5 million revenue year for PRS in 2012. Of course that number is dwarfed by generated revenues of Fender and Gibson but I certainly wouldn't consider those to be "boutique" numbers and hardly irrelevant.
