    Re: Multi-track Recording?

    Ta-da!

    Plus computer fans and drives are noisy.
  2. Re: A likely contentious opinion on electric mandolins

    Where'd he get the whammy bar?
  3. Re: A likely contentious opinion on electric mandolins

    I came from bass to guitar to mando and find they all have their place.

    While some say a single-course electric mandolin sounds like an electric guitar, I argue nuance. There are sounds you can...

    Re: Multi-track Recording?

    Yamaha AW1600. 16 track stand alone recorder with pro audio quality.

    They are hard-drive based so they go cheap these days. I got one and converted it to SD card - simple and cheap.

    I record on...
  5. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    I agree it's a waste of resources and landfill space. If they were looking for a tax write-off that could have been accomplished by donating them to schools or charities.

    It reminds me of a PRS...
  6. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    I registered with Pacer (anyone can do it) but they charge per page for access so I'll pass for now. If anyone has access to the docs it would be helpful to see them. Everything filed in US courts is...
  7. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Regarding Gibson vs. Dean, there's a timeline included here:

    The case against Dean is...
  8. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    I've not taken a position one way or the other, merely asking some questions which you have answered to some degree. Thank you.

    These things can take years to unfold. It's still early in the...
  9. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    While I'm fully aware of what you're saying (which is outside the scope of this discussion) my point is that these actions are decided on the preponderance of the evidence submitted by the parties....
  10. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Thanks foldedpath.

    I understand your frustration and see the same type of thing in all markets, like the automobile. If you buy a Chevy Impala and get a "lemon" you will likely stay away from that...
  11. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    You get out of bed on the wrong side this morning? Jim didn't agree with me but did so in a courteous manner. That's having a conversation IMHO.



    To reiterate what I've already said several...
  12. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    I follow your point but let's, for a moment, consider this as though Gibson were Rolex.

    Rolex makes extremely good albeit expensive watches which many people covet but few can afford. Let's say...
  13. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    If you are addressing me I'd say you don't understand the concept of a "conversation."

    I'll readily admit I'm not nearly as familiar with mandolin/Gibson history as the rest here and really don't...
  14. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Big tech will only enforce a trademark or copyright if it is brought to their attention, plus Leica is/was a German company AFAIK and trademark law is country specific. I bought a Russian-made Zenit...
  15. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    And I think Gibson's current moves to licensing deals leaves that door open for Dean and could settle the issue for now.

    While I tend to agree a valid argument can be made that the Stratocaster...
  16. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Thanks for keeping me honest with the details Jim.

    Guitars makers suffered Japanese cloning in the 60s (prior to that builders respected each others IP). That lead to a major changes in the...
  17. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    IP laws are a relatively recent development, historically speaking. Copyright came about after the Gutenberg to determine who had the rights to use printing presses to make copies - that was the...
  18. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Not sure this is fair. As I stated above I'm like a judge coming cold to this case. I don't know the parties or the history and am relying on responses to provide the necessary context. These matters...
  19. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    I don't believe there is any requisite to register your trademarks. There are benefits to registration, but [theoretically] use in common-law is just as valid in law.

    AFAIK the Lanham Act...
  20. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    IIRC Fender lost its claims to the stratocaster body shape last go around and it's now technically considered "generic." If that's so, Gibson [and everyone else] is well within their rights to make...
  21. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Then there the story according to Les Paul:

    I wasn't there and it doesn't matter to me, but I'd give Les Paul's account a bit more weight.
  22. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    My FM "Black Noise" album has a 1978 copyright date on it meaning Nash the Slash was using the "Slash" name and top hat "in commerce" since at least that date - probably earlier if they were gigging...
  23. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Here's what I can find on Vintage Guitar - it talks about what was going on from Les Paul's POV.

    https://www.vintageguitar.com/2908/les-paul/

    Here's one on the SG Les Paul - (I must have...
  24. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    There was an article in Vintage Guitar magazine a few years back discussing the evolution of the Les Paul. It stated very clearly that the first guitar Gibson presented to Les Paul for consideration...
  25. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    I was in radio at the time FM hit the scene. Those were the early days of FM radio (in stereo) that had a unique university audience that wasn't confined to local demographics like AM was. They were...
