Finally.
Their quality was rapidly going down with prices going up.

The candidate has to be fluent in ipo and exit strategies, probably has to know the difference between a fret and a single coil, must be somewhat nutty to want to get into this at all, and probably must be over the age of thirty.

Let's see.....Papa John is free to enlist (there is a connection between pizza and guitars that I can't quite articulate), Lance Bass lost the bid for the Brady House so he's probably available, but dunno if his singer band ever dealt with an ipo. But hey, his last name is Bass (and I don't care how you pronounce it).

I think Elon Musk plays guitar and might be interested. Don't think Bezos plays guitar, so he probably isn't interested. Bill Gates could be doing more variety, but I don't think he'd look good holding a Flying V in news articles.

I'm drawing a blank here.

It's my understanding that Haim Saban is a shredder.

Maybe Dre could take over and rebrand all the guitars "twangs by Dre."

I would love to see Uli Behringer . . just to see some people being really pissed off . .
and he surely is too busy when running actual successful companies

Why would he buy Gibson when he can just whip up some Gibsons on his own if he feels like it.

Merchandise... T-Shirts, coffee mugs, bar stools.

It's the branding that counts.

When big-haired pole dancers stop having simulated sex with your guitars, you know your brand is in trouble.

If Madagascar buys Gibson can they get a DOJ permit to import ebony again?

So glad I got my custom shop done right when they did things right.
