New Gibson for Christmas

Recommended Posts

Well, my Wife bought me a new Gibson for Christmas - A Gibson Bar Stool!

The Stool is actually great for sitting playing guitar on, but when I opened the box to assemble it, one thing really made me laugh! The side of the box proudly proclaims "Gibson American Made World Played" but when I pulled the seat out of the box, the first thing that I saw on the bottom of it was a large sticker announcing "Made in China". It just seemed kind of funny to me. [biggrin]

If Obama makes a Free Trade deal with China we'll all be doomed.

Economic Apocalypse.

 

Sarcasm?

 

In the eyes of Chinese consumer Gibson is #1 guitar. Only if they can afford the real deal. Just owning one is a status symbol in all Asian countries pretty much. Some don't even play them, they are like trophies.

 

Strange but true another status symbol in mainland China is a Buick. They have a license to manufacture them. Even better though for number 1 face is a USA (Canada) Buick.

 

OP: Nice stool, thank goodness it'd not a sample[rolleyes]
