Peavey ---- Gibson we'll see
Well new rumors have apperantly surfaced out of both companies that HP wants to buy gibson. There are a few reasons why i think this may be valid given Gibson's situation.
Gibson's main distributor Guitar Center/Musicians f. is tanking and may even be liquidated, the recent raid on the gibson factory(and fines associated with it), lack of quality control and lack of innovation or even any clue as what guitar players are looking for.
Before anyone says anything about that last part i work in a music shop that carried gibson guitars and they have some hit or miss guitars. My Company is no longer a dealer for Gibson because Gibson wanted a $200,000 purchase for us to keep our dealership. All i have to do is point to the gibson zoot suit, reverse V, and shred series in order to prove the point that gibson doesn't what is going on.
Either way, I didn't open this thread to bash gibson but i am trying to prove the point that gibson is out of ideas and probably in a fair amount of debt. Peavey doesn't have a strong guitar line (i think thier stuff is fair quality and very consistent).
So what do you think? I think it is possible, and i think it would be good for both companies.
