Gibson loses lawsuit

Haha. Guess they can't control the guitar market and competition won out. (not that I'd buy a single cut guitar of any kind, but competition is a good thing...er, and Gibson is way overpriced for what you get)

Re: Gibson loses lawsuit

I would be willing to bet that they only did this for some publicity anyway. They had to know that they would lose. We already saw this once with Fender, and the headstock is the only thing you can't copy. That would be like Ford saying noone else is allowed to make cars. No, noone else can build a mustang or use ford badges, but that's about it.

It's probably been about 2-3 weeks since this story broke.

Gibsons and PRS's are overpriced but I would take a Gibson over a PRS anyday.

Re: Gibson loses lawsuit

Well most guitars are overpriced these days anyway. ESP guitar prices have shot up, (well for the signature series) and Ibanez has as well I believe.

Re: Gibson loses lawsuit

Then you need to open you eyes a bit more, cause I've seen LOT'S of overpriced Gibsons. Their quality control is not like what it used to be. When I can pick up an Epiphone that plays better than two different LPs, something isn't right.

Plays better how? And for who??

I have a Jem and a had a RG 550, played alike Jem overpriced??
I had a S470 which played by far better than my Prestige 2550. Is the 2250 really worth $900 or overpriced? I rather pick up my Explorer than my RG.
Same price range. And i didn't even needed to change the Pubs in the Gibby like i needed to in ALL my IB'z.

There are Gibsons in almost any Pricerange ..from $800 up to not sure how much. Which one is the overpriced?

Explorer for 1k or the V or the SG Supreme for 2k?? LP Studio for 1200 ?? Firebird?? Wich one? Name names.

Also Gibson has a limited lifetime warranty so if something is wrong they will take care of it. I just called in the other day in regards to my Custom LP and the service received was excellent.

Thousands of artists are playing Gibsons all day for a living.. they seem to be all stupid, as they could have much better instruments and way better sounding ones for way less money. All they have to do is to listen to some kids playing with some friends in garage and soon we see Slash or Zakk or Angus with a white, swirled or floral Jem on stage.

Drags, haven't you learned by now it's cool to bag on Gibson whether it's justified or not. Just because you can get a USA made Faded Gibson for around $600 Doesn't mean people can;t still say they are overpriced and then someone will ALWAYS say they played an A) Epiphone, B)Agile C)any other Korean knockoff that was better than every Gibson ever made.
I find it best to just ignore these kinds of posts since they are rarely ever done with any kind of first hand information.
