& you wonder why people buy so-called 'lawsuit' guitars...
they'll be the only company making gibson-shaped guitars, which is a good chunk of what people are willing to actually buy.
If they win & go after more companies, you're naive if you don't think it will have damning repercussions on the industry.
Wait, is it because they're poor?
Hahaha... thanks! I needed a good laugh.
<turns off metronome>
Sorry, I was practicing...
What did I miss..?!?
Just average haterade from PRS people. They get their cargo shorts all bunched up over nuthin...
I am absolutely certain that you don't. Perhaps you would enjoy threads that don't approach anything near the complexity of thought this one requires in order to participate in better.
The existing guitars have no connection with the new management.
Exactly! I can't have it so those grapes must be sour!
Not a damn thing.
Kinda like the guy who endorses Collings?
Of course I see it.Still I'd like to think if they had issues with their guitars they'd move to another brand. Like Dickey Betts did when he went to PRS.
Gibson is perfectly capable of making great guitars, I would think artists like that would get to pick pretty much what they want.
Just in case you still haven’t seen it yet.....
My 2 cents---
The bit about counterfeit, protecting the copyright and covering up the logo, was just plain bad. It was an awful PR move.
There are plenty of reasons to bash Gibson.
Regarding the video, the people who see Gibson defending its designs as "bullying" are the same ones who bust Led Zeppelin for copying song ideas.... Go figure.
Sounds like we have a Gibby fanboy here... lol
Remember, at least a couple of those guys get paid to play Gibsons. And when contracts run out, they're suddenly a little more vocal (e.g. when Joe Perry was between contracts and played a Super Bowl halftime using several guitars, none of which were Gibsons).
There is a reason that those stars are not commenting - and it's not because they don't have an opinion - it's more likely that they understand the pitfalls of running a business and saying the wrong thing.
He played different Gretsch guitars (including a cool White Falcon) as he was vying for a endorsement deal. Brad Whitford played a Gibson or two (The Explorer and I believe a J45 Acoustic).
