    I must say that the heel joint has never got in my way. This is an issue for some people? Never knew.

    I have some Gibsons and I have to admit, I do suffer from a severe case of self envy.

    I'm envious of the club but have no interest to join. I get it now.

    I love Red Bank, NJ! Florida now Europe later
    That would be me. In fact, in the last month, I bought 2 of them.
    To those who don't like Gibson, "Great". I have no problem with you or your personal likes or dislikes .
    To those who like Gibson, I have no problem with you or with your personal likes.

    Addendum: I am reading on this thread about those who "think" players buy Gibson guitars to impress someone.
    I am not interested in impressing anyone for any reason. I'm too old to worry about crap like that. I've played Gibsons for 98% of my 62+ years playing and the only reason I continue to play them is that for me, I am most used to playing them over any other brand, and they feel great to me. All but one of my current batch are Custom Shop models because I prefer those and the way they are built and feel over the regular production side, and I always have. I do however have one LP Studio for playing outdoors in the Florida heat and more-then-occasional downpour.

    If anyone reading this thinks I'm trying to impress others, please consult your doctor. :) ymmv

    You totally lost the point: everyone would want a gibson guitar that is actually well made and speced if they were rationally priced according to the effort and resources into them. Other brands found a way of making Gibson style guitars that played, sounded and were priced better, which is why Gibson lost part of its own market on the first place

    Never owned a Gibson...and I've been playing since before it became so important that you own a Gibson and are willing to pay ridiculous prices to do so. :D

    Somehow...I don't feel like I missed out on anything...go figure. :)

    That's not very nice...

    Seriously, should we be calling the SPCA?

    Why can't people resist the temptation to start pointless, tendentious, inflammatory threads?
