    Gassing for a Norlin is Reverb a good starting point?

    I bought my first 70's Custom - black beauty - in maybe, 2002? I paid $1000 for it on eBay and was mad at myself for spending that much money. About 6 months later I bought a cream 70's Custom for $1300 and was REALLY mad at myself. eBay bidding fever got me. Looking again recently for...

    Chibsons are getting good

    That's always been my issue. Bash and threaten and demean someone talking about a $300 Chinese copy, but if you're wealthy enough to pay thousands for a '59 "replica" from a luthier somehow that's not only accepted, but coveted. Even have 50 page arguments on who actually made the "Derrig".

    Also, something I haven't even mentioned, but there's tons of talk about decieving and such. On the sites where they sell these Chibsons - there's no Gibson logos shown. No mention of Gibson anywhere in the description.

    I didn't care that it had Gibson on the headstock. Somehow paying $15k for a fake Gibson logo is ok....I guess I didn't pay enough. And I have 2 Gibsons. lol You guys get off on the smallest things.

    No mine is the antique/faded Pelham blue... :) They used pics of Gibsons to come up with the color paint, which they showed me for my approval before they painted it.

    Is a Max illegal and immoral? I said nothing about quality. The Max's are clearly incredible guitars. But most people argue against the Chibsons based on the fact that they have the fake Gibson logo, therefore it is (and I quote) illegal and immoral. Well so do the Max's, but no ones calling...

    I already told you they were fake. There's no way to test anything.

    I know the Chibsons are fake. What defense do you think I have? My point, once again, is so are the Max's of the world. But why do people not have a "legal or moral" issue with that?

    You know what I mean - the Derrig/Max - is it an illegal fake?

    I actually did ask him if the factory could do a custom headstock for me (with a guitar brand name I came up with), and he said they could not. A different division builds the necks with the Gibson logo they put on these guitars - they also do Fender and PRS I believe. I really don't care...

    Fair enough. Are the "59 Replica's" - like Slash's - illegal fakes? Im checking consistency, not whether its right or wrong.
