Gibson isn't owned by Gibson it's owned by an equity firm.

Until they bring back the ES-330 I have to answer that question with a big YES.

For some reason this feels like the Windows Phone .... Like it's a little too late . I love all kinds of music including Megadeth late 80s early 90s https://youtu.be/hfpveFuzFbU but this just feels a tad late . I still rather get a Mexican mad Charvel super strat with a HSS then fool with Gibson or Fender .

I wonder how much Mustaine is making on the deal.

Schon had a limited run Gibson LP that cost stupid money. The ink wasn't even dry before he went back to PRS to do a signature model with them.

Edorsement is just a special form of humor.

Personally, it was always the case for me that I would never buy an epiphone.
I had an old Epiphone Casino back in the day...

The Kalamazoo variety...

There was nothing wrong with that guitar :wink:
Sorry - I don't use auto-tune....

To be fair, the 2019 epi Joe pass is okay. Not great but plays well and looks nice. The tone is another matter. Too much wood not bright enough.
