I think he was referring to our friend SG player...he posts pictures of 'his' Gibsons and will usually throw in something like 'not a copy here' or something along those troll lines.

 

Thanks for the backup, Bro...

 

 

 

 

Didn't realize as the OP of the "Gibson Snob Here" thread that I encouraged mindless behavior from an apparently disturbed individual who's been the bane of some here.

Annyway, Epiphone's are not "copies". They are a guitar in their own right and no one claims them to be Gibsons. A copy is a replication of an original purporting to be what they copy. Epi, and other manufactures of similar guitars, produce a shape which is no longer original or owned by one particular brand of manufacture.

 

OMG! Copies

A valiant attempt Smokey, but I have been tilting at that particular windmill for a while. He is incapable of grasping the concept that Epis are not copies. I think he needs a software upgrade.

That's outrageous. Horrifying in fact and I'm about to pen a letter on this matter to the respective Editors of the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Dubbo Daily Liberal (Yep there is such a newspaper.)

 

Save some of the popcorn for us. We'll be right over very soon.
