  • Yeah, the headline for those pics says "Live From the Production Line at Gibson USA". They are just being marketed with the Hendrix brand name.

    Gibson should make a substantial donation to the James Marshall Hendrix Foundation - Music for Life Program. That would go a small way to help make up for the insult of these monstrosities.

      Damn, I was hoping that was just the title of their blog.

      I'm still having a hard time believing that Gibson will sell a US made Gibson guitar for $500. I mean they have the Melody Maker... crap.

        Yeah, I agree that seems a bit strange. Those necks look like they could have been imported so maybe they're just finishing them at the Gibson USA production line. Or maybe the the Gibson USA production line is actually in China?

        • they reversed the bridge pickup too.


          That actually makes sense to me. The direction of the slant of the bridge pickup in the strat has always been a design flaw to me.

          • People all over are downright pissed off:

            I share their feelings. As you can see... my Gear-Vault post is a bit harsh towards Gibson.

              • I heard the Gear Vault is run by Guitar Center

                either way, the site sucks ball sack. I feel bad for the kid that made it, because he needs some safety crayons.

                • I have a novel idea. Why not judge the guitar on it's own merits instead of saying it smells of dirty p#ssy before even playing the damn thing? I don't want one, but I'm not gonna cry about Honda building a clone of a Harley either. If you say this isn't the same thing you're f**ked in the haid!
                  There can never be a perfect plan. What's perfect for one human bean ain't perfect for the next one. Cuz he's a lentil.

                    Honda didn't just finish suing Harley over Harley making Honda look-a-likes.

                      That's a valid point. However, I also understand the people who are upset over Gibson (and Authentic Hendrix LLC) creating something on Jimi's behalf -- that would probably never exist if Jimi had say in it. And trying to come off as "Authentic" to bank on a legacy.

                      I am still scratching my head as to why Authentic Hendrix LLC didn't team up with Fender? I think there'd be less outrage if it was a Fender...

                      That said, you are correct about the Honda, Harley comparison.

                              I wonder if Gibson actually realizes how dumb this is.

                              • I'm all for "bring your kid to work day," but Gibson really needs to stop letting them design guitars.



                                Look at some of the recent guitars Gibson has put out:











                                Now, with these, the natural finish are okay. It was a decent attempt, but it went way too far:


                                there might be a few people that may like this one, but it's still pretty



                                Why does Gibson constantly object to making a great, well priced guitar?

                                Will people PLEASE stop buying these things new?? This has to stop.
