Appears Gibson is going out of their way to dent their iconic armour.

I'll just keep remembering Les Paul all the great guitarist who have and still do play Gibsons.

Dean has produced many guitars that are obvious rip-offs of the Les Paul, but I thought all of them were just tweaked enough to prevent them from a lawsuit. I’ve owned a couple, and they were pretty damn nice. Dean Zelinsky has long since moved on, has nothing to do with that company anymore, although his new company also makes Les Paul rip-offs, so he might be getting a letter soon. Hell, Ibanez and ESP are surely on the hit list too.

I think you have to sue someone to uphold the trademark or something.

Looked at the Dean lineup. No prob telling the whole line was not Gibson. Hey Curley....You are starting to look like HC . Hows your duck walk?

HJ took a few yrs before we all realized that he was.....different. It is only taking a few months with Curleigh.
