  12. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    This was addressed in the opening post.

    It's clear that a few dominating the conversation would benefit from reading more and talking less. If you just can't understand something, it's no one's...

    I was part of some of the efforts to protect their product, trademarks, etc by Gibson while I was there. There is a lot more to this than just emotions or wanting to kick the big dog. I was used as...
