GC be the Devil.
To carry The Gibson line, a $100,000 buy in is required.
Why does Gibson do this? They don't want to service the small "mom & pop" stores. Orders are slow and few between. GC can order hundreds of units at once, on regular basis.
Funny, a manufacturing company thinking so much of themselves to treat folks like that.
Well, those days are coming to an end. Samick and Cort have invested Billions into China and state of the art manufacturing.
For 80$ wholesale, (ie Staag or Greg Bennett etc.) you can buy a Les Paul copy that will rival any American Made Les Paul rolling off the line today in tone and quality.
I know this, because the music shop where I teach "dares to compare" by displaying an 1800$ Les Paul beside a Staag model that sells for 289$ with hardshell case that is ,...and I'm sad to say, its equal in practically every way.
