    I don’t know if even he can clean up this mess.

    I wonder how long before they drive the company into Chapter 22?

    May be firefox. I edited a setting for some tighter security. I bet it will pull up on Chrome.

    Mark Agnesi, working next week as assistant to the assistant manager at a Guitar Centre near you.
    Or perhaps a leather shop.

    Back when I used to be a TV commercial producer, I used to always coach talent to NEVER EVER shake head side-to-side while delivering lines. It basically says, "I don't believe anything I am saying right now, and neither should you."

    It's a terrible nervous habit.

    Geeze, I hope not. I'm sure he's smart enough to have signed a guaranteed deal. I like Mark, but working in the corporate space is going to take a while to get comfortable with. Totally different than working at Norman's.

    Yikes! The official how not to speak out to customers video in the guitar world.

    I see what they're trying to say but they really had to deliver it that carelessly?!

    To be clear, I don't wish it on the guy, it's a don't shoot the messenger sort of thing here. But somebody is going to get spanky-spanked for this

    The approach resembles a gambit, almost testing the waters to see if anyone would bite on a 'we think you should pay us' reversal of roles that the law allows.

    Just watched it. Wow. That came across as totally arrogant and full of self worth. Glad I switched to PRS.

    Quick Mark, go find those dead horses and beat them, then drag them back to the barn and close the door, and hurry, because the barn is on fire!

    I think magazine capacity depends on the pistol. I have a ParaOrdnance 16-40 (16 rounds of .40 SW) that looks like a standard .45 ACP Gummint model. The new ones are all racegun, but the old ones are stealth.

    I didn't see the video but I do believe gibsons real problem is the chibsons. What they should do is have thousands of strawman buyers merrily ordering copy guitars then when they show up blow the whistle and have them confiscated and destroyed. Reverse the charges on the cc at these escrow holding companies and bankrupt the system?. The factories will be too afraid to sell to any US customer. Maybe sue customs for not finding these forgeries?
    This is the mess they need to stop.

    Then on the other hand. I'm a little worried about buying a used Gibson as there are so many fakes out there. A main reason I bought mostly new gibsons is the forgery issue and financing. Maybe Gibson likes some level of insecurity in the used market to keep new buyers on the hook? I cant be the only one
