A Tale of Two Guitar Manufacturers

In which Heinrich Holder’s Gestapo once again demonstrates that it is utterly out of control.

One might wonder why Heinrich Holder decided that Gibson Guitars should be raided and their property seized (twice!) with no other reason given than the wood they’d imported might not have been exported in full accordance with the exporting country’s laws, Holder’s Gestapo isn’t quite sure about that but it might be the case, something that Gibson had no way of knowing, while its principal competitor, C.F. Martin & Company, wasn’t thusly attacked by Holder’s Brownshirts in spite of the fact that they use the exact same wood in their production.

One might, until one discovers that Gibson is a Republican donor, while C.F. Martin is an NSDWP donor.

Then it all becomes much, much clearer.

Thatisall.

Guess I’ll play Ted Nugent songs on the Martin!! Given that the feds now like to call themselves “The Federal Family”, I guess we should remember that quote from… Read more »

I used to have a Martin Dreadnought, and was thinking about eventually getting another one … until now.

If they really want to do things the Chicago way…

Makes me feel better about buying all those Gibsons a few years ago, and never having owned a Martin.. Martin’s to me, though i realize they play and sound well, don’t have the visual appeal to me that ones made in Bozeman do…

Perry is being taken out of context a great deal here lately. That’s because he can unseat Obama, and they know it. Conservatives had better figure out fast that he is the one who can give Obama a ticket back to Chicago. There is no greater danger than letting Obama have four more years. Stop looking for that perfect candidate… Read more »

Pretty hard to be more blatant than this. Add to it that Gibson moved to a right to work state get away from the unions. Just like Jaybear said up in 1, “the Family”, they never forget.

And yet, not a peep from the lame streamers. How curious. :em04:

Slightly to the right of Gingis Khan says: I’ll be getting a new 12 string sometime this fall, it will not be a Martin now. May I suggest a Guild? Their F212F or F512 is really close to the F212 I bought brand new in 1968 – and still play. They’re quite a bit cheaper than a Martin and I… Read more »

Taylors are very nice instruments, better than Martins or Gibsons in my opinion. Just don’t fly United with one!

While off reading the indicated item about Eric Van Dropper’s Injustice, I came across links to articles about the Neu-Jorkische Beobachter‘s libel & ultimately to this writeup on the origin of the Koch/Tea Party canard. (If DJ ever returns, he should probably read it.) That falsehood aside, I think we’d all enjoy remodeling the subject’s physiognomy/physique.

I wonder where Kramer stands on this. I myself have a Kramer Focus, which looks like a Strat and sounds like one, but is much less expensive (I got it for less than a hundred dollars, and a “real” Strat can cost $300 or so).

There’s more to this than just donations to the DemonRats.

Taylor, Martin, Fender, Ovation – all the same. All made in states controlled by Big Labor.

ONLY Gibson, made in Tennessee, is made in a Right To Work State.

Think that doesn’t single them out? Ask Boeing’s South Carolina Would-Be Workforce.
