I don’t know who they think they are...
As I stated in an earlier post... I have a 60s Tribute Goldtop.. first run. I always thought they were basically a Studio anyway with a paint-job. Shows how much I know..
I certainly can't knock mine, I love it. Chambered body an all. Well worth the money. Quality is ok by me. I only have two small niggles, and they are, slightly neck heavy, and a few fret ends were rather jagged.
Damn guitar plays like a monster though. Those P90s growl..
Them naughty pranksters!
What excellent use of the English language! Nice one.
I almost responded a couple times about his misunderstanding what a Tribute was, but I remembered who I was talking to.
Figured he would tell us he was talking about “those other Tributes”. You know, the dope ones like the one his buddy showed him that one time at Band Camp.
It was dope.
All other Les Pauls suck in comparison.
In spite of the arguments... I could not get my mind off of it. So it followed me home today.
Gibson Innovations, the Dutch subsidiary of Gibson has been declared bankrupt. 60 Employees are out of a job:
Nederlandse dochter gitaarmerk Gibson failliet
Thats just the begining
Clear as mud.
How do I translate?
Here you go.
"Gibson Innovations Netherlands, the Dutch subsidiary of the American guitar brand, has been declared bankrupt. The sixty employees will soon be laid off.
The bankruptcy trustee talks with several parties about the settlement of a bankruptcy, the company reports on Thursday. The curator investigates whether a restart is possible.
Gibson Innovations is a former part of Philips. Since June 2014, the company is owned by Gibson Brands, which started a so-called Chapter 11 procedure early this month to protect itself against bankruptcy. This is a kind of postponement of payment
Gibson Innovations was responsible for the development and distribution of, for example, headphones, audio systems and soundbars under the Philips brand."
Well I used a translation program......
So not unexpected. Gibson buying a cast off from Philips was not very smart. Bad juju for those workers
Sometimes on this phones things are not so obvious.
Oh and for future reference, try this.
That division for Phillips was a dog with flea's that Gibson bought. Gibson's Chapter 11 (Reorg) is a legal vehicle to jettison parts of the company that doesn't make money. That Division was sucking cash and needed to be closed. Remember that the Guitar side of the business is cash flow positive. So you should see a more focused and better run Gibson comming soon. Maybe with some management changes.
Yep. I use that when I'm on the computer. I managed to find a translate command about three or for menus in.
The Tribute models are all from the Studio line, although Gibson doesn't mention that much in their marketing.
Having worked for Philips, I can say that any Philips division that has the potential to be profitable will not be sold to someone else.
