The article states that Gibson CEO Henry Juszkiewicz' secretary "answers the telephone wearing dark lingerie and black boots".

Curiously, Big Joe and Charlie D. have never mentioned this aspect of working for Gibson.

How bout it, guys? Are those Master Models and Ferns being built by minimally clad employees?

Perhaps this fact could entice Bob Dylan to appear in a Gibson ad.

I'm dissapointed that there is no photo of said secretary! I expect we'll start hearing about the other mandolin company dress codes. Everyone knows Gibson is the standard bearer.

Let's see. I'm 6'5" and about 300 pounds. I'm dressed in black knee high socks and big dog boxers. Is that good for you? Don't get too excited now http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif .

Somethings are better left to the imagination http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif . However, I'm starting to get a little old and distressed so that should tell you something...

I guess nobody really cares about the digital electric aspect of this thread eh.. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

Actually, the way the article is written, one might beleive that the telephone is wearing the black lingerie and boots.
Hmmm...wonder what the file cabinet has on?

Hi f5journl. #I think Gibson's latest innovation may draw some curiosity from electric musicians, simply because it claims to improve the output signal derived during a live performance. #But the higher price may be the deal-breaker when compared to what guitar players can pay for a conventional Strat, Telecaster or Les Paul. #And like us, many of them will want to preserve the traditional sound derived from humbuckers, mini humbuckers, etc. #

As for acoustic musicians, I don't think it'll rock our world at all. #IMHO.
