    Maybe they're just angry over the god-awful-ugly Firebird X.

    Reading up on it a bit more, Martin uses the same kind of wood (and ivory)but hasn't been raided.

    Further proof that our country is, in fact, not broke. Anyone wasting a dime on policing the type of wood used in guitars should be ashamed of themselves.

    A bit of a stretch to connect the two, but a good point anyway.

    Gibson shareholders must not have contributed to the proper campaigns

    Gotta pay protection money if you want to stay in business

    This is probably the case. Did Gibson just bust a union?

    Well being a tree farmer... I might have some issue with someone importing wood from some third world shithole. Example Dutch Elm disease... en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dutch_elm_disease

    The point is not that it may be diseased, it is that it is supposedly from an endangered tree.

    Flying V. Gibson was taken into custody along with brothers Junior, Corvus, and Blueshawk.

    It was a long three-minute Wikipedia check. It took forever.

    Don't worry about Martin, they're a Union shop so it's ok...

    actually this is not true. There is currently a case in court over this incident.

    the Gibson CEO claims this is in the pleading... well... that contradicts his previous statement that they've never been charged with anything... how can there be court documents in the case if there have never been any charges?
    Hmmmmm.....

    and if this statement is indeed in the court documents, I wonder if they are public? I quote from them backing up this claim would be nice.

    bravo... nicely spun bit of hyperbole.... but why stop at "machine guns"? I mean "flame throwing wielding" would have had a better ring to it :waveyguy:
