Must've mistaken that Indian wood for evil al Qaeda wood...:icon_cool
Just another day in the life of a Jack Booted Thug.
my tax dollars so well spent.
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.
How can anyone support the feds after seeing seeing shit like this?
Hey don't forget that guys with imported Japanese cars (regardless of whether or not they make them emission friendly) also have swat teams come and confiscate their cars. It's nice to see that they have all this money and any talk of the country losing money is just a lie.
this thread is missing something but i can't quite put my finger on what it is
Links to infowars.com?
Gibson shareholders must not have contributed to the proper campaigns
Gotta pay protection money if you want to stay in business
Or maybe to the unions?
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.
Been working on that for awhile?
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...
Strange turn to this story. Gibson CEO said Feds told him his troubles go away if he outsourced his labor to Madagascar (with Audio).
The president of Madagascar was quoted as saying SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING!
yeah maaaaaaaaan!!! where do they get off enforcing the LAW!!!
pretty simple, dont violate the Lacey Act, feds wont bust you for it.
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?
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.
Machine Gun Weilding Federal Agents Storm Gibson Guitar Factory
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:
