It's official. Gibson filed for bancruptcy in the last 48 hours. Meaning that hundred thousands of Les Paul, SG and ES models have lost their dads.

They won't disappear. What exactly will happen to them for the future is still to be written. It is however an end to yet another era of Gibson. I've owned some nice Gibber's over the years but they've never stayed in the stable. No regrets. If i sold my Japanese guitars i'd be heartbroken.

Some Chinese company will buy them and they will make them even worse that they have for the past 18 years. In the 90s Gibson were pretty good, in the 80s they were even better. The 70s they were really bad. I just cannot believe how bad the ones from 2005+ are.

I sort of regret selling some of my 90s Gibsons but really all my Tokais and my Burnys are better than my 90s Gibsons.

I hope the company can still make it somehow. They just need to trim the fat they accumulated over the years and start focusing on their core business. They made so many bad investments over the years, trying to branch out into other stuff.
