    Default A Sad Day For Rock Guitarists Everywhere

    http://societyofrock.com/breaking-gi...content=gibson

    I've owned two Gibsons, a J40 acoustic and the legendary ES330! In general I loved the electrics but not the acoustics - acoustic necks were not to my liking. But a slide played on the 330 and run through a Twin Reverb was smooth as glass. A good friend had a 57 Les Paul that I always thought was the best electric guitar I had ever heard or played.

    They'll file Chapter 11 and hopefully reorganize, but it's a tough market out there! They need to fix their quality control problems of they will surely go under.

    Just take a positive spin on it, 1. they might have a clearance sale and 2. you old collectable Gibsons have just increased in value.

    I'd like to see the company make it back!

    Isn't Joe Bonamassa making a bid to rescue the company?
