    Maybe now the asswipe will take the rivets off of his fucking jeans, so they don't ruin our fucking guitars!

    Bonus!

    Well I don’t think he can fuck it up any more than HJ did, let’s see where he takes it and hopefully he’ll do the brand proud and make something we can all afford to own and be proud of

    I still don't understand why people are hoping for prices to all of the sudden drop, that is never going to happen with this or any other CEO, want a cheaper gibson? get an Epiphone. Gibson won't start cannibalizing their epi business just because. If anything, I see them raising the prices more than lowering them down the line. Just my 2 cents.

    I see it a plus that his nickname is simply "JC" and not "Chip" or "Kip" or "Iceman" or "Maverick" :)

    I'd rather they pull the plug on the Gibson-style Epis and make them closer to their original designs (Wilshire, Coronet, etc.) so they can make a import Gibson line

    Either that or suck it up and put an open book headstock on the Epiphone Les Pauls

    No other large guitar maker* has issues offering full spec lower price models

    *well...PRS now doesn't offer a fully-carved model under $3500

    As long as this dude doesn't screw my plan to buy a used '80s or '90s Les Paul next year.

    Looking forward to hearing more comments from him and his team about mission statements and where they want to take Gibson from here.

    Dean Stockwell?

    Well all I can say is I hope the lyric "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss" doesn't apply.

    Nope not him,He's been around quite awhile. Guy i'm thinking of would be younger and more recent than Stockwell..Minor roles like middle eastern/European type terrorist parts.


    Dang wish i could remember.

    Yes, Henry could play guitar, but he had a tough time focusing.
