thoughts?

My guitar teacher told me about this. He said that peaveyd make make a bunch of good changes, and that lately Gibsons are Turning into garbage.

I'd have to agree.


EDIT: 1999?!?!?!
But I just heard about it today!

Haven't played too many Gibsons. But i've always been a Peavey fan, i'll embrace it. Hopefully it won't turn out badly.

It's all over message boards and such, but any reliable sources?
I think it would be a good idea for Peavey to buy them though, Gibson is turning into crap.

I can find no evidence of this anywhere. That "source" appears to have gotten it's info from a post an a message board, and even then it was just hearsay from a retailer who said he heard that Peavey was "looking into" buying Gibson.

I'll be damn pissed if Peavey scraps Epiphone. Peavey doesn't make too many guitars now a days... i think the wolfgangs are their big seller. This might be good yet it could be potentially horrible.

It's gonna sound wierd to say "Peavey Les Paul" or "Peavey SG", etc.

I don't really care, as long as they continue making the classic models.

Gibson has been making a lot of stupid changes, like pretty much all their recent amp releases, and redoing the whole les paul line.


Not sure if peavey taking charge would be any better though
