have been in a lawsuit with Gibson
Please Send me a brief Synopsis of what happened
I will print it.
I will also print anything that Gibson wants to say
Gibson is by
far the most litigious company I have ever heard of.
Hey Ed, I hope everything is nice in
Nevada. Here's an interesting story I read on the
internet just now. I don't think you will be surprised
when you read it:
They are spending money suing video game makers instead
of, oh I don't know, focusing on music. I don't know if
you follow game stories, but this "Guitar Hero" is huge
for Gibson. You have probably at least seen the fake
little game controllers shaped like Les Pauls and SG's
with five color coded buttons on them. You are supposed
to push the buttons in the sequence in which they
show-up on the screen and you have to hit them at the
right time in order not to suck. Then you will be a
guitar God. Why the hell don't these kids get a damn
guitar and learn to play a few riffs? You have to give
credit to Gibson though, by putting their name on the
controller it will hugely influence a first time guitar
buyer into getting one of their axes. Here's the
funniest story now. There are companies on the Net that
actually make "custom" game controllers! Oh yeah, you
can have any picture or design you want on your custom
Gibson shaped game controller. Fender is also in on the
game; who do you think has the license for "Rock Band's"
Anyway thought you would like to read an interesting
story. What do you think of this Robot Guitar Gibson
has? Another way to lure in newbie guitar players who
don't want to learn to tune a guitar or any of that
traditional stuff. Some gimmicks are great and some suck

I was recently on a Les Paul forum and I noticed
this hateful assed post about "why does Ed Roman hate Les
Pauls?"...I hate Les Pauls too.. matter of fact...my review
of a Les Paul could be summed up in two words: "shit
sandwich"...anyway...they go on and on about how terrible of
a human being you are but not one.. I repeat NOT ONE could
respond, or even bring up, the facts you state about Les
Paul necks, headstock angle, cheap wood, foreign
construction that claims to be from the U.S. You've
deprogrammed me...and seeing these people bitch and bitch
about you and they like Les Pauls "just because" and "they
rock" and "Ace Frehley plays them" isn't good enough in my
book... I come from Missouri.. the show me state..&
I've been shown your guitars.. I've been in your shop...and
I've also seen Les Paul's.. played them..
Hell my father has an original 52 without a serial number he
bought at a pawn shop in 1964 that's been sitting in a case
and sees the light of day once every 5 years when he gets it
out.. Its a 50 something year old piece of shit...oh
it gets a tone, sure...but hey if I eat at a Mexican
restaurant my asshole will produce a tone too.. big deal !!
peace on the hill brother!!!
Thanks for your kind letter and your
support, I appreciate it. People are
Forgive them father for they know not what they are talking
about. Ha Ha
What were you doing on that stupid forum anyway ???
I can convert that 52 to a 58 or 59, I can make it
playable anyway !!!!!
Some vintage geek will buy it on Ebay, because he thinks the
mojo will rub off on him.
I've done it before !!!! And I'll do it again,
that should piss off those retards on the forum.

My name is Aaron. I'm 24(guitar player for 16 of those years
so far) and I've honestly never played on a Gibson that I've
been fond of. Their playability has always been shit to me.
when I graduated high school, my father was going to get me
another guitar. I was looking at getting a black les paul
studio. when I picked it up, I realized the neck was crap,
the boy weighed more than me, and the frets were awful. I
have a friend who had an SG and his guitar slid down when
sitting up against the bed and the neck cracked at the neck
joint (you heard right. the actual joint part of the body)
and at the headstock around the truss cover spot. That was
on an Epiphone SG too. I can go out on the Internet and find
really cheap gibsons on ebay and craigslist only to find out
they're selling them because of the neck cracking situation.
I don't understand how they have any kind of legacy when
their guitars are such shit. Also, the gibson owners who
still praise gibson after their faults, Buzz Osborne (The
Melvins) has a Les Paul that's had the neck broken on it 5
times( 5 friggen times!!!!!) and still plays it. Are you
kidding me? Talk about dipshit. I love your website and the
badass guitars you make. One of these days, I'm making my
way into your shop and having you build a guitar for me.
Keep it metal!!!!
