Why We Rag on Gibson

I think a lot of us hate Gibson's business practices. Their lack of
quality control as they crank out thousands terribly inconsistent guitars.
Their shameless practice of charging ridiculous prices simply because beginners
and inexperienced players will blindly spend too much money -- thinking that
buying Gibson means they're automatically buying quality. With MOST guitar
companies, if you pay MORE money, you will get a better made guitar. Not so
with Gibson. Gibson cranks out just enough truly great guitars to keep their
mystique alive. In reality, it's a spin of the roulette wheel at best. You may
find a great one if you're lucky, but the odds are against you.
If any other guitar company (except maybe Fender) tried to use similar
tactics, they'd be out of business in a hurry.
