You might have to point it out for some of us who don't know what we're looking at
don’t think mike did this, it was a session guy that owned it after mike.
I heard a story, that some very large manufacturer drove a steam shovel over hundreds of brand new guitars.
I doubt that it's true
Did not that, interesting!
I guess WTF still applies?
sorry about that...
The vintage blue molded caps were removed and replaced with orange drop caps, I have tested 100s of blue molded caps, not found one bad.
Just shows people who rip stuff out without knowing if a part is good or bad, it devalues the amp for no good reason.....
I fix stuff like this a bunch!
Electrolytic caps are different and should be replaced....a different story.
If ya own a vintage blackface don’t let a tech remove to blue thingys, if he does.
Get the blue things he removed!
They are about $20 each on eBay!
A steam shovel? Was it in the 1920's?
It was a trackhoe I believe. There's a video of it.
I've read references to this several times, but apparently I missed what it's referring to. Wanna help a fellow picker out, plz?
I can google the video and it is sad, but I'm looking for the context and why it was done. I had seen a pic about 17 years ago of the contents of a dumpster outside of a Gibson factory, and there were whole guitars in it.
Just curious why this is going on from a company that's been teetering on death for years now.
So they could declare a tax loss on the unsold items without them showing up in stores because they got sold out the back door. Corporate finance ********.
Gibson hired someone to destroy hundreds of firebird X's and they video'd it. Excavator running over hundreds of them.
To be fair that was scripted for the movie Blow UP.
i must be a slow typer.
Ha that reminds me of my favorite book as a kid “Mike mulligan and his steam shovel”
What year is this 1920?
I believe RodeoTex is right
I didn't see a single head stock snap off....
They did that all wrong... guitars were too close together.
I think I’d always ask a tech for the original parts that are removed
GG Allin used to shove microphones where the sun dont shine.
Mic drop... sorry
True, they could have stacked them up or something, but early in the actual crushing part, you do see a couple of headstocks snapping.
