    I know hes not a metal guy but i always enjoy watching Philip Mcknight.

    Oh and Troglys guitar show. He basically gives a history lesson on every guitar he shows, with such enthusiasm and conviction.

    "Unfair competition." :lol:

    I knew it was wrong to give Gibson's new CEO too much credit and leeway. I mean is Gibson really that mad that Schenker plays a Dean and not a Gibson? Or perhaps it's because Gibson can't really release a James Hetfield signature V/Explorer because he's signed to ESP?

    But seriously, though. Keep milking that Slash and Iommi dollar, scumbags.

    He's a likeable guy. Generally knows what he's talking about. Love his Fender "history" videos.

    Sorry, but not a fan of McKnight at all.

    Yes. Gibson is literally stuck in like 1979 at most. They still tout the tune-o-matic as a big wow factor and selling point. The only thing they've "innovated" in the last.... 50 years? is probably those shitty robot tuners everyone hated

    That being said, they make some very good pickups

    Yeah, but with the competition, I'm sure most would rather use SD, DiMarzio, Wilde (Bill Lawrence), and the hundreds of other companies out there.

    He apparently approached them to do the Iron Cross as a signature and they told him to pound sand, so they just don't know what they're doing.


    And while I like Trogly, it fascinates me that he traffics so many guitars and is like a Gibson historian but doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground when it comes to amps.

    Maybe they weren't into the Iron Cross because of what it sorta relates to, but ESP doesn't seem to give a shit. (Lynch, Hetfield, Hanneman)

    In fairness, Marshall has some rather confusing 70s/80s amp models.

    Actually there was supposedly one in the works. I BELIEVE James actually had a replica prototype ready to go. But Gibson fucked it up somehow, or James pissed them off. Idk. I just know sometime between 2008 - 2009, James was using a LOT of Gibson stuff, then suddenly drops them like a fucking hot rake and goes back to using strictly ESP and KL.

    I know it's easy to blame Gibson, but there has to be more to it.

    Consider when members of the same band have no problems with getting signature models made. Two recent examples are Kirk and Bill from Metallica and Mastodon vs James and Brent. Same band, same guitar company, yet very different outcomes. The only variable being the artist themselves.

    Drama grabs attention. :lol:

    Judging by what Brent said, Bill tried to be a super patient guy and I guess he was trying to hope for the best outcome (IE: kiss Gibson's ass in his own worlds :lol:), but seems like he had enough as well. He eventually took Brent's side and said Gibson is hard as shit to deal with and was becoming a shitshow.

    Also on his Instagram, James gave the same reasons as Bill eventually did as to why he left. AR was a bitch to communicate with and it took forever to get changes made. Also claims the Kirk V came to be because they went to him after the Iron Cross debacle.

    I wouldn't kick a Gibson out of bed for eating Cheetohs.

    But a large portion of their customer base doesn't want innovation. For an LP they want a '58-'60 burst with HB pickups. These are what sells:

    I own this and I've had more Gibson aficionados say the color belongs on a PRS not on a Gibson lol...

    Anyways it doesn't mean other models don't sell. Personally I prefer the goldtop P90 look to a burst and that's what I bought:

    But the sales numbers are what they are.

    I think I saved Hetfield's version of that story. Here it is.

    Anyway, back to the Invective.

    Ew that button placement is disgusting. No wonder people copy their shapes and make them better.

    In other news, I REALLY should've kept that Hamer Vector.
