        I think that they were much better guitar makers than business men.




        I had a Heritage rep tell me just this week that the main reason why Heritage isn't more popular is because his guitars don't say 'Gibson' on the headstock. I told him he should probably stop making Gibson copies then if it was holding back the throng of potential buyers.

                I don't dislike 'em. They've always struck me as pretty nice guitars. The ones I've played, played well too. But they didn't have much character, very little danger to 'em so they've never resonated with me.



                Being in business requires good business people to run it. Otherwise it won't last long and doesn't "deserve" to just because great craftspeople work for it. Sorta the crux of the issue, huh?

                          I can't speak to Guild or Jackson but the import Gretsches I've played have been excellent instruments (especially for the price).




                          Well, Guild is not really doing much. They're making a handful of really nice acoustics (in the same plant as Hamer/Ovation), but most of it is imported GAD stuff. A dozen or so archtops, no solidbody electrics. Guild suffers from the same malaise as Hamer - no real brand identity. I've met the folks at the Guild factory. Nice folks, but they've got an uphill battle.



                          Jackson is doing better. There are still some people who want pointy guitars and superstrats. I've seen a couple of different designs other than those. Don't know how they're doing, but at least they're trying.



                          Gretsch is doing well. It has it's own unique identity that isn't Gibson or Fender. They've got great manufacturing. And Joe Carducci is doing a great job. But he's got something to work with.

                            I suppose I should recognize some of these people. I'm guessing one of them is Eddie Van Halen. But all I see is pointy guitars and bad hair.

                                What is funny is that Paul Reed Smith probably saw this ad and thought he could do better if only he put a Strat trem on there. lol
