I just don't have the heart to tell him that it is the most hated CC model out there.
Yes. Yes it is simply unbelievable.
Several people here have them and, by all accounts, they are great.
I didn't buy a "Les Paul" because of the name on it.
I wouldn't pass up a decent guitar if it had the name of the guy who saved Gibson on it.
Henry is more important to the legacy of Gibson than Les is. There, I said it.
I don't see the problem.
The name only has to do with the current owner. I'd try it and buy it if I was looking and it's as good as the other Collector's Choice models.
A collectible guitar that people have a chance in hell of playing better than the namesake..... that doesn't come around every day.
I have mixed feelings on this. He (and others) literally did save Gibson, and subsequently went on to produce guitars in the late 80's and in the 90's that IMO were the best Gibson production line models ever made (excluding 57-62ish). And yet, somehow, in less than 20 years, look what has happened. It's baffling.
Who cares? Next.
I don't get this thread?
I don't see any reason why I wouldn't be thrilled to death by owning that guitar. I guess there's a lot I don't know about collector and custom shop stuff.
Don't worry Bro. I don't know who Henry J is, I'm just clearing through the threads so nothing remains in [BOLD].
I wonder if it comes with one free outburst from captain nutbar?
Totally off-topic, but what you wrote made me think of this joke.....
I give you.... The "Out" 'burst.
Might be better value than some of the other CCs?
The idea of Henry having a signature model is silly, but in the end it's just a nicely aged Goldtop. So long as they didn't put Henry's signature physically on the guitar, it should be a fine instrument.
My wild, unfounded guess is that at least 80% of Gibson buyers worldwide have no idea who the CEO of Gibson is, let alone that this is a copy of one of his personal guitars.
Honestly, I have played Gibson guitars since 1993, and until I joined this site in 2011 and read all about him, I had no idea who Henry J was. I just knew I liked Gibsons.
THAT is what they're banking on.
I'd prefer the "Ted McCarty" version, but sadly, PRS already owns the rights to use his name.
Why anyone would want to own a LP with Henry's name attached to it, is beyond me.
And, not to derail the thread, but Henry did NOT "save" Gibson. There, I said THAT!
Curious? I wonder what the guy paid for it?
such an idiotic thread
to hate a les paul for its owner is simply put, unbelievably stupid.
CC12 is one of the coolest sounding reissues, imho
She is beautiful? She sounds great? So, where is the problem ?
