Federal agents last week stormed the Gibson Guitar factories in the Tennessee cities of Nashville and Memphis, confiscating pallets of exotic woods, computer equipment and several guitars.

The Gibson Acoustic Jackson Browne Model is a true collaboration between the artist and the guitar maker and is inspired by Gibson’s fabulous Jumbo body design of the 1930’s.

Why they chose to install junk bridge that wasn’t married to the top is anybodies guess after doing such a nice job on the rest of the guitar. A couple of extra bucks and they would have had a much more marketable guitar. Which do you like better? Made In Korea or Made In China guitars? […]
