Hah! I thought so!
Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul.
Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.

I love Gibsons. Just ordered a new Flying V HP model to rock out. Such a fun playful raw guitar. Plus they look far out like a space guitar to fight aliens with music.

Great message. I see evidence of this on every internet marketplace I follow. Thanks for the post.

It used to be Gibson AND Fender, but over the last bunch of years Fenders have slipped, in my local market Fenders saturate the market and demand very low used prices. So no question people still respect the Gibson name, regardless of what the internet says.
