I wonder if the Deans had this many issues as well. I'm not referring to the bottom of the barrel versions, either.
Dean's were fine 🤦‍♂️ 3 piece neck came unglued and zippered the paint down the back of the neck. Dean would not honor warranty. Never again. Screenshot_20220623-125323_Gallery.jpg

Had 2 korean dean VMNT and some other models like a cadillac or razorback V, and they were all really good. No problem at all. Inlays were complete ;)

Am I right in thinking the import ones would be Kramer as opposed to Epiphone?
If they bring out Epiphone versions I could be really tempted...
The imports of this Gibson will be Epiphones. The pointy guitars will be Kramers, whether US or import.

Or that's the implication we've seen so far. The KV shaped guitars have all said Kramer, and the guitars that have said Epiphone have been Flying V shaped.

Not sure Kramer versions could be US made…
There are no US models on the market right now so I’d go indo or korean for those at 1200 euros, seeing the actual trend… heafy’s epi are expensive really
Guess I cant get used to the price increase right now….

So you're suggesting that we won't see a USA Mustaine pointy V?

if Gibson doesn't open a US Kramer division i doubt it....or maybe Dave will have one or two but they will be made at gibson's and branded Kramer I guess....

everyone probably already knows this but in case you don't, watch glen frickers ( spector studios) review of the mustain v .
Oh yes, the one where he basically wrote off the whole guitar because of a couple finish flaws and the factory setup out of the box...

So didn't they say the natural and silver were "limited" as well? Now they're saying this green one is only 100 produced so people are trying to flip them on reverb?

So this isn't deserving of it's own thread, but *another* artist is moving to Gibson it looks like?
Take a guess at who it is. A bass + "R.B."
