    Nu stiu ce inseamna "merita". Ca bani, nu merita. Va costa mai mult decat o chitara noua facuta la standarde actuale pentru o companie Occidentala. Daca are valoare sentimentala, poate. La asta nu putem raspunde noi.

    Articole Interesante (De Citit La Cafea)

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/03/17/couple-engage-musical-instrument-stealing-spree-walk-shop-11000/ "As thefts go, the woman caught on CCTV tucking an £11,000 rare guitar inside her fur coat before nonchalantly walking out of a music shop could not have been more brazen. Even as she and her accomplice left Peach Guitars in Colchester they turned to the staff to smile and wave goodbye. But it has now emerged that the couple is behind a series of thefts of valuable and often rare musical instruments from shops throughout the country and across Europe. [...] “We think she was taken to court a few years ago but she got off because she claimed she was not in the country at the time of the offence. I think she’s Romanian.”"

    Muzica vazuta ca sport de performanta, boala RGC-ului. Nu sunt probleme deloc.

    Asa ar fi daca interesul pentru ele s-ar pastra constant. Nu cred ca e cazul.

    Gibson Bankruptcy

    Am trimis inapoi cu scandal unui magazin marisor din Germania un Gibson Les Paul Junior Billie Joe Armstrong cumparat nou si venit cu probleme estetice sub un Fender Mexican (mici aschii lipsa pe marginea fretboard-ului, finish deja "checked"), dar mai ales cu truss-rod-ul instalat gresit din fabrica - nu functiona, si a crapat gatul instrumentului. Dealer autorizat Gibson, chitara noua, nu era entry-level. Mai am un Custom Shop (un model mai ieftin), care e excelent, insa dupa ce am schimbat potentiometrele si condensatorul "bumblebee" - care e doar un condensator ordinar vopsit ca un bumblebee (am pus un link intr-o postare anterioara). Potentiometrele trebuiau sa fi fost ca pe original, ca deh, "Historics", in schimb nu erau nici macar logaritmice. Din raspunsul Gibson: "Custom Shop - Historics only (CTS) Volume - 500k Linear – short shaft, even for LP Tone - 500k Linear – short shaft, even for LP" Deci Historic Historic, dar condensatorul doar arata ca cel original, n-avem 50s wiring, si potentimetrele nu sunt nici macar logaritmice, cum erau pe original. A trebuit sa-i schimb si pragusul de "Corian", in care intrau corzile ca in branza la fiecare bend mai serios. Era dezacordata chitara dupa 10 minute de cantat. Ce-i drept, acum e o chitara excelenta. Mai multe Gibsonuri nu am, pentru ca dupa experientele astea m-am gandit ca as fi fraier sa am, dar sper ca e suficient cat sa am voie sa particip la discutie.

    OK, dar nu asta era ideea. Ideea era ca nu e chiar adevarat ca Les Paul-urile nu sunt instrumente pentru metal. Trupe ca A Perfect Circle si Tool le folosesc aproape exclusiv, ba chiar Adam Jones sustine ca nu s-ar descurca fara a lui. In clipul cu A Perfect Circle, oamenii spun si ca le folosesc in acordaje alternative. Mai mult:
