I did try to search this but didn't find anything. Maybe I searched the wrong thing, got a lot of results but nothing for this specifically. If this has already been discussed I am sorry. I have noticed that in quite a few homemade builds of burst replicas and other Gibson replicas people have blacked out the logo. I assume this is has something to with copyright. But I have a couple of questions: 1) Can Gibson actually do anything if you put a Gibson logo on your own, homemade, guitar as long as you aren't selling it. 2) What are people's view on using the Gibson logo if it isn't Gibson made guitar?
