If Gibson and Fender went out of Buiness

Recommended Posts

Gretsch.

 

Have yet to play a Rick that really has "the rick tone" (I have played 2 and none of them were high end ricks).

 

ESP (they make this nice strat copy that plays and sounds great... the downside is that it costs more than a standar strat... so while fender is around there's no point).

Now is the time for a few of us to put together a package deal to buy the Nashville Gibson plant. Would be a turn key operation.

 

form a S-corp and start negotiations.

 

Who's in?

I don't know, really. There's a company called Stagg I've been meaning to try out for a while that makes nice looking LP copies, but I haven't invested the time to take one down off the wall and play it yet. I haven't really played an Ibanez that I really like... so I don't really know. I guess I'd just be glad I got a gibson while I could =D>

So you talking union job or non union in the long term?

Gretsch would be my new favorite. I'd also do Ibanez artcores, Epiphones (unless they went with Gibson). I'm a big SG fan, so I'd probably pick up a Schecter S-1 mahogany and throw PAFs in it

Unions are things of necessity. If the workers are treated assets instead of liabilities they will not be necessary.

Workers are treated like assets. This is a problem to my way of thinking. Other assets are:

 

my phone,

 

my laptop,

 

office supplies,

 

my office furniture ...

 

See? These are also just "things" to be managed with a cost associated to each. Thats what corporate america has done the to workers, union or not.

IF Gibson and Fender (just Those brands) went out of business, but the other companies they owned,

by some miracle, survived, it would be: Gretsch, Rickenbacker, Martin, Heritage, and Guild (especially, for

their acoustic 12-strings). But, I'd probably just try to find "used but not abused" Gibson or Fenders, too.
