This is nothing new from Gibson.
Could be. I would have phrased it as you just did.
I have a 555.
I can’t stop laughing. These are excellent suggestions.
This kind of makes me want to build a Flying V.
Have Kurt Russell do some voice over/ narration...
Love this post
when I ran a guitar making business, we copied everybody but changed the headstock. The courts say it's only headstock design that is copywritten.
I really liked him at Guitar of the Day. I thought he was funny and played cool guitars for his day job. He definitely appreciated the classics - gear and music. Unless you're some old crusty jealous fuddy-duddy, what's not to like?
Should we care for any particular reason?
I'm not decorating my home with Chibsons so I'm not sure what I should be feeling about this.
I do feel a little bit glad that Gibson hasn't gone under yet, but our buying habits are working really hard to kill them off...
This thread seems oddly familiar? But i still feel the same about the guy's tactics....not a fan.
The fact that they retracted the video shows that, however belated, they realised that it was a wrong move. It may be too little, too late, who cares? I care whether they start making a product that compels me to part with my cash.
Goodness knows what their thinking process was, but they were getting everyone excited about their rebuilding the brand after the shenanigans of 2018; this kind of PR faux pas is the last thing they should have even come close to executing. It's childish, petty, and makes everyone look askance at the brand, and for entirely different reasons to the Henry J era.
I'm neither a fan nor hater of Mark Agnesi. Maybe some of you guys are a little too sensitive to hate on the guy; why bother with a man who has no impact on my life whatsoever?
Perhaps he has a personality or way of talking that rubs people the wrong way. Nobody's forcing anybody to watch any video he puts out, so I'd avoid taking whatever comes out of his mouth as a personal insult.
I've met him and bought a guitar from him. In person, he is a very nice person. As a salesman, he asked me what I was looking for in a guitar, picked out 4 models from inventory and let me play them without hovering around. When I was done he asked me what I thought. He then proceeded to knock the price of the guitar down about $500 less than anywhere else you could find it. I had nothing but a very pleasant experience and good time talking to him.
Gibson is on the ropes, I think they should do everything in their power to protect their IP.
I like the new guy a lot.
I'm ready to buy another Gibson. This doesn't change that. It's time for another SG.
I'll just play my asat thanks.
I actually like Mark a lot and really enjoyed his Norm's videos. Interesting and entertaining.
On the other hand, I hate Gibson guitars.
Agnesi comes off as trying way too hard to be cool and just comes off kinda douchey on YouTube and on Instagram.
I came close to buying a used Gibson this last weekend ... 80 LP player grade, three piece laminated neck with a volute which made me consider it. In the dim light I found a pair of repaired cracks in the headstock. Seller acted shocked, must be prior owner, had and gigged the guitar for six years so there's no problem blah de blah. No thanks. I left for not disclosing.
Another example of why I can't buy any Gibsons -- that too fragile headstock problem and all the drama around it. Too many other guitars out there and Gibson is intent on not changing that design defect.
I'm seeing a trend in the public side of Gibson has a theme of NY or similar accents, leather jackets, and grease slicked hair. All an abrasive theme trying to convince customers to return? They need to figure out humble and easy going. I am sure their two biggest markets are Nashville and LA so they really need to fit those styles if they hope to sell anything.
