Why Can't Gibson Enviers Just Give in, and Buy a Gibson?

    If I paid attention to everyone online who slagged something that I liked, I'd be both terribly busy and pretty unhappy.

    Who freakin' cares? If you're playing it right, the headstock is not going to be the center of attention, and if you're not, no precious logo is going to rescue your set.

    In your slogan attached at the bottom about Mariah C.

    Truth be told I’m making a personal stab at only being positive moving forward. I was thinking the same thing about possibly ignoring you. But in reality you might have valuable info some day in a post. I’m dropping this because I don’t think it brings anything to the site. You can choose to ignore if you like but I’m holding no grudge. Wish you the best.

    I’ve had an LP Standard and also a Standard Plus they were excellent guitars. I like single coils more however

    Depends on the Gibson. I've owned a few, but the only one I've kept is the Tennessean, which is a fantastic guitar. I wanted an Explorer...never found an Explorer I liked...ended up buying a used '97 Hamer Standard and it's amazing. Same with Les Pauls. Never had one worth keeping, but I now have 2 PRS SE models that I couldn't find a reason to get rid of if I tried. It all depends on the specific guitar and your wants/needs.

    I purchase Gibsons that have Epiphone on the head-stock and save a bundle. ;)
    Wonderful instruments that get the job done at a fraction of the price.
    Keep up the stellar work Epiphone/Gibson!!! :)
    This has been a non-paid advertisement for an American company that caters to both ends of the financial spectrum.
    And now for the obligatory pic...:rolleyes:

    I have 3 CS Les Pauls and most of the time I prefer my Squier CV Tele. Go figure.

    I have epiphone and Ibanez
    2 les pauls
    3 335 copies
    an sg

    with string butlers, new pups and electronics...maybe a new bridge or 2 I have great tone, playability, and no tuning issues period

    each guitar cost me 1/3 after mods of what a Gibson would cost...the name on the soon to be broken headstock aint worth it to me

    I am happy with my Tokai.

    It's a Love Rock. It's a '59 lp with a cooler name!

    :love: :dude

    I mean everyone on the interwebz and the guitar world in general is talking about Gibson at the moment. Here at the TGP there have been a lot of Conspiracy threads and whole lot more Gibson threads lately. I'm not sayin' it's a conspiracy but...

    Is it just me or is the title and premise of this thread just specious speculation that "Gibson Enviers" are even a thing ?
    Personally I love the idea of living in time where I ( average Joe guitar consumer) has myriad brand choices at multiple price points for similar styles of guitars

    Very nice indeed. Great guitar, too.
    I'm guessing it's the highly coveted Supro Titian (50w) with matching 12" extension cab?
    Vintage Guitar Magazine gave it a nice review.

    Love the blue rhino-hide covering.
    I have several and cherish them.

    Yes Titan and Cab and PRS CE 24 Thanks I'll read the review. I thought it was pretty savvy that the Extension cab is slanted slightly up.
    Wow you have more Supro's than any store I've seen, very cool

    I think it's just a throwback to our pack ape days that most people feel a primal urge to belong to some tribe, or team. Whether it's politics, social and ethical issues, sports, movies, cars, you name it. I felt it in Junior high, like most people. The need to "fit in." It's almost completely gone, now. I like what I like, and if you don't, that's fine. It doesn't make me angry, and I don't takeout as personal insult. But some folks sure take it that way. I don't understand it, and don't want to.
