Bat Goddess 2018: Gibson guitars bankrupt? (40) RE: 2018: Gibson guitars bankrupt? 21 Feb 18


Most of my experience with Gibson's was in the 1960s and early 1970s. (I think the Dove my first husband bought in 1970 was actually made in 1967.) I always liked playing Gibson's because I have a small female hand and most Gibson necks are narrow. It's a more comfortable guitar for me to play.

I no longer own a Gibson -- they went the way of my first husband.

I also no longer have the body and physique I had before the 1980s when I met Tom (Curmudgeon) who was an incredible cook.

Now I have two guitars: Tom's Guild (not sure what model -- 1960s or, perhaps, earlier) and a, umm, Chinese-made "Mark II" which has a sweet tone and lovely action. I paid $50 for it at a yardsale. It's original price (and it was brand new, circa 2000)was $200. The kid I bought it from bought it and brought it home and then discovered he'd actually have to learn to play it. I got a bargain. I don't perform (guitar, at least) professionally, and it fits my needs.
