I have played Gibsons, and other since the early '70's and love the guitars I own. I hope Gibson gets back to guitars and guitarist's ideas of guitar. Unfortunately with many companies these days, upper management takes too much in compensation and doesn't listen to the craftsmen and craftswomen. Why does it always come down to a "Golden Parachute" for the CEO that screwed up and a "sorry we don't need your services any longer" for the other???
