    Why do some players hate Gibson so much?

    AFAIK, GIBSON is a privately held/owned company. That usually means there is no stock to buy and no ticker symbol for the stock exchanges because it is not on any ? BUT IDK, maybe there is ? I'm not a stock broker or economist but I just looked at Bloomberg's Investment web-site and there is no...

    Why do some players hate Gibson so much?

    Yeah, I agree with your assessment...the '57 Classics are the $#!ZZLE on an SG, they just are....the 2017 SG Standard I got looks exactly like your SG on the right except for the yellow toggle tip and yours has the 22th fret Nck Joint but other than that its identical...Just for laughs and...

    Intonation flat on wraparound with no travel left

    21 Gibson SG Modern tuners

    IDK if I've ever seen 'Spilt-Posts' TM's as you posted above, that weren't G-Farce. Who makes them ? From the looks of the ones you posted they remind me of the 'G-Farce' TM's.........are they MIN-E-Tune or 'G-Farce' TM's ? IDK if Epiphone went that route...Those look like the strings are put on...

    Why doesn't Gibson offer a p90 SG that's hum cancelling in the mid position?

    GIBSON is a notoriously CHEEEP private company, ask any former employee (I HAVE !)......BUT to be fair, GIBSON is just like any other company, the only reason they do anything is based on $$$$/cost.

    NGD! 2020 SG Special

    Sharp SG, I agree that 1st ding/scratch/chip/whatever is always bordering on TRAUMATIC......it is the exact reason I will not spend over $4K on a guitar, and usually not over $2K..I ain't a Rich Guy....and.....I know what I am eventually going to do to it........and....... that it is only a...

    Even good players get anal with new guitars

    IDK if I am understanding you correctly BUT IF I am , maybe put a new NUT on it and create the slots yourself ? that should be a way to even the spacing out, no ? IF I correctly understood what you mentioned I think that would solve the issue, I THINK !.
