I have pretty direct knowledge, from a friend of Henry's, and a major dealer of Gibsons.. that one of the things that is killing the company, are those stupid robot tuner equipped guitars. Gibson forced A list dealers to buy them.. passing on their failure to understand the actual wants and needs of their customers. Try bending a note on one of them. That, and likely collusion with Asian companies making direct rip off copies, complete with 'Made in U.S.A.' and Gibson style serial numbers... is the cancer that killed them. This is nothing new for Gibson. They have made so many bombs, it isn't funny. The 'Bluesbird,' The Nomex body guitars...and the victory basses.... If they really knew what we wanted, we'd have lefty EB-2'd's, Rippers, Thunderbirds in both 1 and 2, in reverse and non-reverse. But, Gibson did what it did. I believe that Gibson will still be here when the dust settles. And that's good, because look at Chrysler now. They were dead and buried.. bankruptcy was the best thing to happen to them.
