    My sources say the Firebird headstock is the result of a test run of this merger.

    If those Gibson necks weren't glued I could swap necks with my Fender's and claim I got
    a brand new Paul.
    Bitch!
    Oh well, fuck the world then!

    I wonder if a Fender neck would fit on a bolt neck Epiphone body.

    I would love if PRS bought Gibson. I bet the QC would be significantly better, and I bet there would be stunning finishes.
