    I have friends who do and would never subject myself to what I've heard about his management style. My only point was that in the interactions I've had (playing at his clubs and for company functions) he's been really cool to me.

    I agree, he doesn't help his reputation with his behavior.

    How embarrassing. I know my limits as a rhythm guitar player. I can't solo, so I don't even try.

    Don’t think it really matters (Leo didn’t play)... I give Henry lots of credit for buying and trying to run Gibson... not an easy task mind you. I have a soft spot for Gibson since I grew up visiting the KZoo factory in my homestate with my father on occasion. As a entrepreneur/corporate guy myself, it is not an easy thing to take an iconic product with so many fans/critics and please everybody. There are some significant things Henry could do to really move in the right direction and solidify some more love amongst fans.. I know a few things which could get some of that Gibson mojo back... I hope he has good people around him to push him in a good direction in these challenging times. Would be a fun challenge to help that brand get back it’s glory and set itself up for the future.

    Henry can't play, also Leo Fender couldn't play either. Henry isn't a business man but Leo was. That's all the difference.

    Boom! Somebody who has interacted directly with HJ and has no evidence that HJ is in fact Voldemort. Will wonders ever cease (I should add that to the sayings thread)?

    and don't own an Epiphone, and if you do,..go away.

    :laugh2:


    The owners have changed though right? It's not like it was 10 years ago or so from what I hear.

    Idk,..I pretty much just come here for my guitar stuff.

    How can you have a bad day with the coolest looking dog on the planet. A little Cattle Dog never hurt anyone.

    The singer is awesome.











    Nope he isn’t, I was just saying that in jest. The singer sucks. Actually he sucks worse that I do & I can’t sing, period.

    :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :run:

    It's actually quite difficult to assess Henry's ability to play a guitar but very easy to determine that he can't play a fuzz-box.

    If I owned that company, I'd have a guitar in my hand close to 24/7.

    I'd go back on Adderall and I would take at least a 1-hour lesson/instructional jam with a pro, every week day. In fact, I would make it part of the PR program and I would use a variety of teachers (sourced through MLP), give them guitars and some of their most promising students, too.

    I would also spend part of each day, for months, working as an assistant to the various people who actually build the guitars and get to the point where I could do each of their job functions. In fact, once I had learned how to do it, I would make a guitar, with their supervision, from start to finish and we'd hang it on the shop wall as a reminder of why we were all there.

    I'd also give away a free Les Paul to some lucky door-prize winner at MLP and some Gibby product on the Gibson forum, once a month. It would be hard not to like me, no matter how big a douchenozzle, if I gave away a free guitar every month.

    He has multiple fake accounts posting positive reviews about the 2015 lineup.

    Both of those should be easy to spot...
