I received an email alert that there is a new post in this thread. But the post was a bit longer.Does anyone else see the irony in the name “Banker?”
It is my understanding that the guy used to be a banker. But now he build handcrafted guitars, so he is in fact a luthier.Does anyone else see the irony in the name “Banker?” Seems fairly synonymous with “Gibson” to me. Guitars built by Banker, for bankers. I’ll choose to spend my money with a true luthier craftsman, not a “banker.”
A Gibson guitar is a production line guitar, even a "custom shop" Gibson.Gibson has a "Custom Shop". They can't build their own guitars better than a relative newbe. This baffles me.
Do you mind if I ask a hypothetical question.thanks for this but I don't prefer it
It isn't built by Gibson. It's only using licensed shapes. Squier is owned by Fender, but they aren't Fenders. They are licensed by the parent company to use the body and head stock shapes. Warmouth makes Fender neck replacements with the proper head stock shapes. They aren't made by Fender, but Fender licenses them to make and sell them.I don't get it? If it's licensed by Gibson, why not just call it a Gibson?
