    I find coated strings never have the nice new zing of traditional strings. Sure, they may seem to be consistently duller for a longer period of time but ultimately the metal's properties of the strings change anyway from work hardening making them hard to play and having incorrect harmonics and tuning.

    Henry has always been underfunded. The rumors of his demise have been around for years. Many have predicted his failure and so far he has managed to keep the name alive. For how much longer? I have no idea.

    I do find it disturbing that so many here are rooting for his failure. I want this ride to go on forever. It's Gibson guys. I have been thru the Norlin years and their failure and now we are going thru the Henry years and I really don't want it to fail. To many good folks would be hurt in the process.

    These are troubling times and we need to keep all of our American institutions going. There are a lot of issues going on that no one wants to address. I agree with you. It's a scary time but don't sell Henry short.

    There are far greater issues than the failure of the wood industry. One poster wants to take this discussion into the political realm. He not only wants Gibson to fail but he wants the President Of the United States to fail. Good grief. If the country goes down we all go with it. Can't we just step back from the edge and play our guitars? I have no control over what happens but I will tell you this. The rumors of Henry's failure have been circulating since the day he bought the company and they will continue. We will just have to ride it out and see if he is going to keep the company afloat. Me? I'm betting on him.

    You must not be referring to me, I never said I wanted Gibson to fail.

    PS: The country will be fine, once it gets its enema completed.

    Listening to Neil, I know that sound well, my HD-28 sounds similar, a bit thuddy when the strings get only slightly old, like 1 week. I have learned recently that ebony is not the best bridge material for maximum sound transmission, rosewood has it beat. I attribute this to the fact a Martin likes to have new strings and a Gibson may be able to get away with them for a while. This has been my experience in the last year after buying my 4 new Gibsons.
