From the store where I bought my first electric guitar (a factory second Gibson L6-S):

Most likely, instruments will be made (as usual) in China, where they can use any woods they want and simply mis-represent what the wood actually is on the import documents.   A few hundred American craftsmen are put out of work, but why should Americans have jobs in America anyway?   :-[

It sounds like Gibson will finally be in capable, music-loving hands. Here's hoping there's an equitable balance of financial and business savvy with brand and product respect.

You have to love the irony that Melody Capital played a part in rescuing the company. Wink
