Or more like Jeep suing other vehicle manufacturers for using grills that look like theirs, perhaps?
I think you mean Carvin, not Charvel. Although I think the Kiesel/Carvin shape is closest to the Jackson Rhoads shape.
Really on the V someone should have contested it when Gibson filed their trademark - that's what happened when Fender tried to trademark the Strat/Tele/PBass/JBass shapes: multiple manufacturers contested Fender's attempt to trademark the shapes, so the trademark office declined Fender's application.
I feel bad about misusing the term "patent", I'm usually more careful about that sort of thing.
Ha! I know. It's silly. It's business and has nothing to do with me or anyone else buying Gibson or any other brand of guitar.
I'm one of the old farts. If it looks like Gibson and it's not it's a copy. If it looks like a Fender and it's not, it's a copy. No matter how good or bad, it's a copy.
NOW GET OFF MY LAWN
I've always thought the highest form of flattery was supposedly someone copying you. That Keisel guitar was registered in 1986, Gibson's in 1995. If I was Mr Keisel I'd be sending a cease and desist to Gibson..
It’s not Keisel or anyone else makes a big enough dent in the market. If this suit were anything other than childish harassment Gibson would need to sue exactly every other shop on earth.
if anyone has a ‘case’ for violations it would be Fender.
And I'm one of the old farts that couldn't give a flying banana if it's a Fender or a Gibson, if it's a good guitar.
Yep. Saw this yesterday.
Maybe I've been living under a rock but I've never heard of Keisel. Could it be that Gibson is "picking" on a small guitar manufacturer because it's easy pickins and can get them scared enough to fold?
Again, I've never heard of Keisel and they are a huge company...dont know anything about them. I'm just throwing the question out there.
A bare chested Mark Agnesi wearing a biker jacket is in the air as we speak..
kiesel is carvin. Renamed for some reason.
They do if you file in other countries which a company like Gibson would do.
Only if their application is accepted, which is not always the case. Europe told them to take a hike.
Kiesel started making that guitar in 86 I believe. Gibson didn't trademark it till the 90s. So theres that.
You are correct. I was speaking in general terms. Technically you don't file a trademark you register it. In countries where it is registered you can enforce it.
Pretty lame , I’m not a Gibson anyway.
I was assaulted by Agnesi once.. he bit my knee when I was bending down to flick him off..
