I have nothing against Gibson Guitars but with the company I'm not so sure. The 335 case is interesting because if Gibson won it would almost end consumer choice in the semi solid market. This really isn't about trademark infringement at this late date. Gibson didn't go after Guild or Fender when they produced their versions. They didn't go after Ibanez either once Ibanez changed the headstock shape. This feels more like a very large company trying to put it's competition out of business. And make no mistake Gibson is backed by a very large company that loves to litigate things. Gibson doesn't have any debt at this point and it's owner KKR has over 140 billion dollars under management. Today is a great time to buy guitars and we have a lot of choice in the market now. Whether it's Dean, Godin, Collins, Warmoth, Schector, ESP, Ibanez and so on these companies all give us something different from the standard models of the fifties and it would be a big loss to our art form for Gibson to retroactively be able to take that choice away from us.
