the CEO says he plays guitar. The last guy did to. I wanna see some video. I'm dissapointed by his choice of a J45 over a J200 though.

It shouldn't matter whether he plays guitar or not. His job isn't to play guitar, it's to run a company that makes guitars. Just my opinion.
well, that is most certainly true. I wasn't making fun of the guy.
But he's being pimped as "the guitar player who's gonna turn it all around". So I'm curious as to how they're defining "plays guitar". Not that it matters one bit if he's a better player than the last guy. The good thing is that there's some accountability this time.

And while it's also true that Leo didn't play guitar, Freddie Tavares sure could.

Have you seen the prices for Levi's lately! Dude has made them into a luxury brand. There goes any price decrease.
Have you seen the prices on Gibsons lately? They are already a luxury brand. Levi knows what its customers want and more importantly they share a similar history to Gibson. This sounds like an excellent move to me. All we can do is hope he leads the company in the right direction.
